Tickle Me, Don

Author Jerry Pinto
Publisher Talking Cub
Synopsis Why is the hamster such a scamster? What’s it with mothers and coconut oil? What happens to children who dig their noses? Why do we need new days of the week? What’s a questoon? Award-winning author Jerry Pinto answers all these questions and more in his first book of poetry for children. Here you’ll find happy poems, serious poems, poems that sound words of warning, poems that leave you on the floor laughing. There are poems about children who top their exams, or go swimming with sharks; and there are poems about fat cats lounging on mats, and rats in Bombay flats. Filled with illustrations as quirky as the poems, Tickle Me, Don’t Tickle Me is hilarious and intelligent, tender and wicked. It is glorious.
