Disclosure: Disney Hyperion sent me The Itchy Book and is partnering with me for a giveaway!
Do you have a 6- to 8-year-old? Your growing readers will love THE ITCHY BOOK by LeUyen Pham. It’s the latest beginning reader in the Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! series from Mo Willems, available in stores May 15, 2018.
And you’re going to love LeUyen Pham’s colorful, comic-style illustrations and her use of dialogue in speech bubbles — just like the Elephant & Piggie books. It’s a funny story with easy-to-read, accessible text.
The Itchy Book is a silly story about dinosaurs who have itches. BUT, they can’t itch because they see a sign that says, “Dinosaurs Do Not Scratch”.
The dinosaurs remind themselves that they are TOUGH. They can do this. Even if they have lots of reasons to scratch like dry leaves, a caterpillar, and sand from the beach.
The funniest part is when the turtle moves slowly away from the sign uncovering the missing word. Now the sign says “Dinosaurs do not scratch alone” — phew! Let the scratching begin!
About the Author: LeUyen Pham is a prolific, bestselling illustrator of many books for children, including Grace for President by Kelly DiPucchio, Freckleface Strawberry by Julianne Moore and God’s Dream by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Pham has also written and illustrated her own works, including All the Things I Love About You and Big Sister, Little Sister. A former animator for DreamWorks, she lives with her husband and two sons in Los Angeles.
