Tikki tikki tembo-no sa rembo-

About the Author

Arlene Mosel (1921-1996) first heard the story of Tikki tikki tembo as a child. When she grew up, she shared this wonderful tale with countless children, including her own. Because so many young listeners responded enthusiastically, she decided to write her own retelling, and Tikki Tikki Tembo became her first book for children. The book was named an American Library Association Notable Book and won the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. In 1997, The New York Times named it one of the best 50 childrens books of the previous 50 years. Mosel was also the author of The Funny Little Woman, which won the 1973 Caldecott Medal for Blair Lents illustrations and was recognized as an Honor Book by the Hans Christian Andersen International Childrens Book Awards. Mosel was an associate professor of library science at Case Western Reserve University. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Mosel died in Indianapolis in 1996.
 
Blair Lent began illustrating picture books in the 1960s. He received the Caldecott Medal in 1973 for The Funny Little Woman, by Arlene Mosel, and has also been awarded three Caldecott Honors. He lives and works in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

I have been repeating and singing this boy's name since I was in high school, Now that I am older I sing it to my girls; it has been difficult finding this book. My girls are eggar to read this book as I have stated to them, there are few books that one remembers. This book really is a memorable book. I would highly recommend this book. I think the boy's name will stick to each reader that has an opportunity to read this book. Enjoy!

i remember this book from when i was younger, i think it was read to me by a few teachers and was always a favourite. i have a friend who even though hasnt even seen a copy of the book for 15 years remembers the whole entire name if the boy who fell down the well.
i think its great and i will be reading it to my primary school class.
