    This is one of the best books ever for children. I wanted to find a book that my classroom full of two years olds would sit down for and this was it!!! They loved this book and if you get a room full of two year olds to sit down, man, you have a great book!

    The tickle monster sounds like a pedophile.

    The writing could have been better...my son likes it just for the idea of tickles and monsters.

    I really wanted to use this for a k book on scary things, but this disturbed me. I usually love a "faux scare" book like wolfs coming or bedtime for monsters, but this went over the line. They never show the monster and basically negate all a kids tools for self comfort ("your teddy bear can't save you, your blanket can't make you secure") I know it's supposed to be silly and fun, but I can't serve this up to my classes.

    In simple, repetitive, rhyming text the author builds suspense surrounding the moment before a young child is tickled thus replicating the excitement children feel when playing a tickle game. By placing the setting of the story at bedtime, the author creates a humorous alternative to children's nighttime fears. Know your child, however. While some may find the story accomplishes its objective of easing fears, others may only internalize the sense of an unstoppable force coming to get them.

    Kind of conflicted on this one. Silly story about tickle monster- but at the same time, made me realize how weird this concept is (Made me realize how much tickling takes any sense of control away from a child and their personal space.) The way this was framed was definitely in a way that joked "fearing" the tickle monster. Not one I would use in the classroom. Kind of conflicted on this one.

    This is a picture book. This book is very cute and all the words rhymes. It talks about the tell of tickle monster who will come down from giggle hill to tickle you at night so he can get a good laugh.

    This is my oldest daughter's FAVORITE bedtime book. I have it memorized because we read it so much. Ashleigh is going to get the book right now because she sees the picture of it on my computer right now...! ;) This is my oldest daughter's FAVORITE bedtime book.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book is weird, since we never actually get to see that the Tickle Monster is the little monster's father. Thusly, the resolution is unsatisfying and a bit off putting for the children (and me, frankly). This could have been a winner if we'd gotten to see the identity of the Tickle Monster.

    Quick read. Written in verse. At first it sounded a little scary (especially if read just before bedtime)... but once we got to the tickling part, it was fun. Little one enjoyed that we played along with this one. :-)
