LoveReading View on The Tickle Test

Two little lab-coated mice set out to find out the best way to tickle (sending their mice assistants in to do the actual tickling). Their subjects include a giraffe, bear, a tiger (tricky – start behind the knees), a gorilla, an octopus and even a crocodile. With the exception of a rhino, everyone loves to be tickled, so where, the last page asks, should we tickle you! The storyline is lots of fun and this is a picture book that demands mass tickling interaction. Adrian Reynolds is an expert at illustrating animals and they wriggle and squirm and laugh in a series of delightful images.

The Tickle Test Synopsis

Could you pass the test to join the Tickle Squad? One brave mouse is willing to give it a go! It's easy to tickle a giraffe and fun to tickle a bear. An octopus is trickier (underwater with all those arms) but tickling a crocodile is the hardest one - with all those sharp teeth! This is a ticklish tale that children will love.

The Tickle Test Press Reviews

White's simple plot uses a predictable rhyming scheme that will lull young readers into the singsong story... Reynold's vividly coloured, cartoonish characters leap from the pages   Irish Times

The rhythm is ticklish and fun  Kirkus

Kathryn White's rhyming text, coupled with Adrian Reynolds bright, humorous pictures make this a picture book that will be great for reading aloud and sharing with others.    Armadillo Magazine
