What It Is

The board book Tickle features author and illustrator Leslie Patricelli's bald baby character getting tickled. Of course, the baby tells the Tickle Monster that he's not ticklish, except for his legs, his feet, his tummy... but he's really not ticklish at all.

Is It Fun?

This is a sweet and funny book about a spirited tickle fest that ends up as a family cuddle. Young kids will love the silly illustrations, and parents can also use the book to introduce parts of the body.

Who It’s For

Tickle is for ages birth-3.

What To Be Aware Of

Additional board books featuring the bald baby include Toot.
