Ill. by Sam Lloyd. Bloomsbury, 2015. ISBN 9781408839690
(Ages: 2-6) Sam Lloyd's vibrant multi-coloured dinosaurs bring to life Pamela Butchart's rhyming picture book, YIKES, Ticklysaurus!
All of the dinosaurs are bored and glum on a hot day in their muddy swamp home. Brontosaurus wants something fun to happen. One of his friends, the big, purple and yellow Ticklysaurus know just what to do. It is time for a game of Tickle Chase, yikes! Brontosaurus is the first to be caught and in the excitement, does a wee. Tickly's arms reach everywhere up to the tree where Pterodactyl is hiding and into Stegosaurus's cave. No one is safe from the spaghetti arms of the Ticklysaurus with a tickle, tickle, wiggle, giggle each of the friend's is found except for T. Rex. No the funny dinosaur can't do it, so he turns to tickle you!
A humorous read aloud story for families, kindergartens and preschools to share.
