Remember this book!? Thanks Mum (again) for finding "Tikki Tikki Tembo" for me! I have been wanting to share this childhood favourite with Kees but it had been tricky to locate. What a great story, and the illustrations are just brilliant.
Don't you remember the boy's name? Tikki tikki tembo no sa rembo chari bari ruchi pip peri pembo. If you loved it as much as we did when you were a kid, you could probably still rattle that off in your sleep.
This is really a wonderful tale, but very tiring to read aloud!
