Children's Corner: The Tickle Tree

 This book is a beautiful, whimsical bed time read.  "A phantasmagorical flight of fantasy at your fingertips..."  The poem from Chae Strathie is lovely and a little Seussian, but it is the illustrations that make this book fabulous.  Poly Bernatene is the illustrator and her work is incredible.  She has captured delightful dream world that is completely inviting.  I love that the words aren't always straight types set, but where necessary, follow the art around and over pages.

This would be fantastic made into prints for a child's room.  It's a soothing pre-bed read that makes me want to snuggle up with my daughter and dream right along with her.  This is one not to miss.
