Don’t Tickle the Hippo!

Publisher: Usborne

Don’t tickle the hippo, you might make it snort! Or you could make everyone within hearing distance fall about laughing...

Goodness knows what will happen if you tickle the monkey, the bear or the parrot. And what utter chaos might follow if you tickle them all at the same time!

A deceptively simple idea is brought hilariously to life as youngsters are warned not to tickle the animals, which is basically an open invitation to do just that. Each animal has its own touchy-feely texture and delightful sound effect that add real personality to the two-dimensional pictures.

Further texture is provided by cut-aways and peep holes that each reveal another element of the natural environment.

Bright colours and a plethora of detail in the form of many other animals, insects and plants, provide a wide variety of stimulation and interaction to broaden the appeal of this sturdy board book.
