A small mouse sets out to become a member of the Tickle Club. He tickles a giraffe, a gorilla, an octopus and other various animals. Two mice in scientific robes observe and make comments as he tickles all kinds of animals to earn his gold medal and membership! Oh no, has he been eaten by the crocodile? Could you tickle a crocodile? Now, can he tickle you?
The colorful, imaginative, and fun illustrations of animals dominate the pages. A child can easily identify the animals as they read and look for the mice that can be found on every page. Parents can goo the extra mile and teach children animal sounds to make as they turn the pages. A wonderful book for small children who usually get be bored with long narrative and who love exotic animals. This is not a book for parents who object to tickling.
