Praise For Tickle Monster

"The whole is quite elegant in the execution of its dramatic design and the demonstration of how the child copes with fear independently, without calling on a parent."

"This book has strong visual appeal with illustrations that are simple yet eye-catching. This is an effective tale about independently and creatively overcoming a fear. VERDICT A solid choice as a reassuring bedtime story... "

"Throughout the story, the child’s teasing tone perfectly matches the monster’s expression as it loses more parts... This book puts children in control of fears. At the end, the narrator warns the monster if it returns, “I will tickle you again!” This well-executed and graphically appealing book invites participation and would be fun to act out. Children also could use colored pieces of paper to create (and rearrange) their own monsters."
