Having just landed his spaceship from Planet Tickle, Tickle Monster is silly and fun, loving to tickle young children, even children of all ages!

The rhyming text leads you to each place this Tickle Monster will attack next throwing in a bit of anticipation when a page end with “…” and you must turn that page to find the spot.

The illustrations are large and colorful and, as you can see by the pictures above, there is absolutely NO fear involved with this “monster.”  This is an easy book to enjoy!

When you purchase the “Laughter Kit” version, it comes with two soft Tickle Mitts that fit on the hands of the reader.  Your fingers stick out from the main part of the mitts and are prepared to tickle!  The book can be bought separately as can the mitts.

The outside of the box of this kit says, “There is no better childhood memory than time spent laughing together.”
