Beware the frightful tickle monster! This silly, atmospheric bedtime story is one part wriggly anticipation, two parts fun as a little monster gets ready for bed—all the while dreading the arrival of the infamous Tickle Monster, who’s known for his relentless attack on toes, bellies, and every other ticklish place a young child—oops—a monster might have. Just right for bedtime giggles, this is a tuck-me-in story with a delightful twist.
James Otis Thach remembers vividly what it was like to hide beneath the covers, awaiting a visit from the Tickle Monster. Sometimes he still does that! When not writing monster books, he runs a tutoring company with his twin brother. James lives in Los Angeles, California. www.jamesthach.com
David Barneda’s illustrations have appeared in books, magazines, newspapers, film, the Web, and, from time to time, hanging in people’s homes. This is his first picture book. He lives in Sherman Oaks, California, and at one point he had a Ping-Pong table in his dining room. www.barneda.com
This is James and David’s first collaboration. They worked on The Tickle Monster Is Coming! at a local Krispy Kreme store, where James probably ate 300 doughnuts while they got the story and drawings ready.
