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.”

Original review 12-11-2014


I am a quiet woman growing each day in the LORD. Christ is my home. He is the well from which I drink. I became His 25 years ago. I am 71 so that is actually a small percentage of my life through which I could have walked closely with Him. No matter, He never stopped waiting for me. I am now a widow from a Christ-centered marriage of 25 years to Kenneth. I praise God for him. I miss him so. We had no children. I feel God’s call to be His light in this dark world. I am grateful for the love God gives to me so I may give it away. I live in Lufkin, Texas, USA (in Deep East Texas/Pineywoods). I have taught Women’s Sunday School/Bible Study, co-administrated/taught a teen girls’ annual conference. I participate in women’s Bible studies in church as well as on my own. I am a retired elementary school teacher, having taught in California, Washington, D.C., and have taught older children and adults in Oregon and Texas. I also retired from being a children’s librarian in the public library system, a job I thoroughly loved. I tutored primary-aged children who are falling behind in those early years of school until we moved in May 2017.
