Tickle Monster is such an adorable book! You may remember actress and now author as well, Josie Bissett, from the popular Tv show Melrose Place. Well, this mother of two is the author of the excellent book the Tickle Monster. I am not usually a big fan of celebrity actors/singers writing childrens books, but Josie's books are very well written and thought out. Illustrator, Kevan Atteberry, did an amazing job with this book as well. The book cover catches your attention and makes you want to peek inside! The Tickle Monster won the Publisher's Choice Award in 2008 from the Family Magazine Group and was recognized by the Mom's Choice Awards in 2009. The book's reading level is listed for ages 4-8 years. However, I think this book would be a great baby shower gift. I also love the idea behind this book: There is no better childhood memory than time spent laughing together. I definitely want my son to look back on his childhood and remember laughing a lot. I bought the Tickle MonsterLaughter Kit for my book loving 18 month old. The story is very cute and flows well. The mitts bring lots of giggles from my little guy! You don't need the mitts to enjoy the book, but I think they make for such a fun experience. The mitts are extremely soft. In fact, my son loves to rub them on his face! The book and mitts come in a very nice case. I think this case is so great because I don't have to search for the mitts every time we want to read the book! I had never heard of the Tickle Monster until a few weeks ago. I found this book by chance, and thought it was so great I knew it had to be the November book for the Nook. Since I think this would make an amazing gift for the holidays, I decided to contact the author to see if she would be willing to give a Tickle Monster kit to one of my lucky readers. Well, as you can see, we are in luck because one of you will be getting your very own Tickle Monster Laughter kit!
