What the critics say
"Narrator Alison Larkin brings the imaginary world of Tickle Plenty to life with a voice as light and sweet as cotton candy. As Tickle and her friends go on a magical adventure down the Lemonade River to the Lollipop Garden, Larkin narrates at a slow pace with deliberate, precise diction that is clear and singsong as a bell. She portrays the characters of this fantasy world vividly, creating just the right voice for each, including a breathy, exuberant Tickle; a badly behaved magic wand with a Cockney accent; a grandfatherly British bear; a wise child giant with a Scottish accent; a delightfully buzzzzy bee; an excitable, fast-talking bird; and many others. This audiobook is perfect for young children who like gentle, imaginative stories." (AudioFile Magazine)

A delightful, imaginative tale for children!
I loved this audiobook. The story is original and delightful - in some ways Minkoff's writing is reminiscent of Lewis Caroll, in others of Roald Dahl. My daughter loved listening to it before going to sleep. The narrator is the same narrator who read her other favorite audiobook, Beck and the Great Berry Battle and we just love her voice. This audiobook is really special.
