A portion of the proceeds for this book will go to Art With Heart, Healing Youth Through Creativity." -Josie Bissett

Although we've only had this book for a week, Tickle Monster has already become THE favorite after school AND bedtime story for our daughters (ages 5 and 7). They love the adorable illustrations and can hardly wait to turn the page!

It's a good thing we always read this book on the floor--the girls are always having so much fun and giggling so hard during the story, I'm sure they would just roll off their beds in laughter!

What a great way to end the day!

I recently acquired a copy of this fabulous little book (Tickle Monster) and have really enjoyed reading it to my son before bed. Initially after bringing it home it was not his first choice as he had his favorites that had to be read. Then, one night it was my turn to choose which book we were going to read and I decided that it was going to be Tickle Monster and since then it has become a fast favorite of his. We read it nightly even if he decides he wants to read a Bat Man book first - we always have to read Tickle Monster before he will settle down and go to sleep. And now that the (Tickle Monster Mitts)are available for purchase along with the book we have even more fun.

This is definitely a book that will in fact create memories, but not only for your child but for you as a parent as well. I truly enjoy our time together and now we read Tickle Monster every night and then we play "Tickle Monster" every morning to get him out of bed as well. It is so nice to hear the laughter each night and every morning coming from my favorite "little man".

Format: Hardcover
All I have to do is say, "Time for bed - let's read Tickle Monster" and off they go running upstairs giggling all the way (even though I haven't even started tickling them). We have 4 kids and hundreds of books in our house. This one is our family FAVORITE, because it's such a fun way to end the evening after a long day of work and school.

The kids decided they like the Tickle Monster to get Mom too, so I usually get tickled from head-to-toe. Let's just say it's the most interactive, silly, goofy and giggly book on the shelf.

Tickle Monster does a great job of delivering anticipation. As you read through the clever, rythmic rhyming pages, the book builds up to a new body part that you will tickle. Our kids start squirming and laughing before the page is turned knowing that something somewhere is coming - but they don't know what!

I will be giving this book as a gift for future baby showers and birthday parties because it's a rare find that kids will remember for a lifetime.

Your kids will love this book and so will you! It is fun and humorous. I definitely recommend buying the monster mits to go along with the story. It is a perfect gift for any young child.

Brady (my 18 month old) loves this book - he giggles his way through it and loves the mystery of each new tickle area! This book is not only fun to read but interactive and engaging. We read it over and over and I just love to hear him laugh - he even starts screeching in anticipation of the next page. We BOTH have fun reading it!

This book and matching Tickle Monster Mitts were a gift from my grandmother for my son and he loves it! He's only 10 months old, but we already have fun together with this book and I know it's only going to get better when he's older and can anticipate the tickling! It's very cute and I will definitely keep it in mind as a gift in the future.

Format: Hardcover
“Tickle Monster” is an endearing children’s science fiction picture book with whimsical art by Kevan J. Atteberry and zany typography. Tickle Monster from the planet Tickle could not be any cuter with his big eyes and colorful striped tail and horns. His only mission in life is to bring the precious sound of children’s laughter to the universe.

This is not a book you can simply read to your child. To get the full effect, you must tickle as well. If you are unpracticed in the art of tickling (gasp), don’t worry! Tickle Monster will guide your fingers. Though the story has some rhyming quirks that break the sing song quality of the prose, the rhyme scheme, however flawed, is not the point of the story. The glory of this picture book is that it sets the perfect stage for quality bonding time. It encourages parents, older siblings, and other loving adults to participate in interactive and imaginative play with the backdrop of a fun science fiction setting.

If the little one in your life runs screaming and bursts into tears at the thought of being tickled, you might want to leave this one on the shelf. It would not be my first choice as a book to teach reading since the author makes up many words to bolster the silliness of the story. I would not choose it for teaching rhymes either, unless I want to compare instances where the rhyming works against instances where it does not. If you are a lower grades teacher, it could be a fun and playful way to work on body parts like tummy, neck, feet, and toes. The interactive elements would just need to be modified to remove physical contact. “Tickle Monster”, at its core, is best suited for parents and other caretakers with their little charges as a way to play together and bond. Word on the street has it that you can buy Tickle Monster gloves to enhance your story time, too. How fun!
