The Tickle Tree by Chae Strathie
Illustrated by Poly Bernatene
The Tickle Tree is a beautifully illustrated lyrical bedtime story. A parent asks his young boy whether he has seen a Tickle Tree, or a giant galumph, or walked with a wibblebird, or scratched an old crabbysnap...and he promises the boy he'll see all of those magical characters once he goes to the land of dreams.
The illustrations help transport the young readers to a dream like place, filled with magical creatures and awesome experiences. The rhythm of its verses turn the book into a sweet lullaby perfect for bedtime.
