Tikki tikki tembo-no sa rembo-

chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo!

Three decades and more than one million copies later children still love hearing about the boy with the long name who fell down the well. Arlene Mosel and Blair Lent's classic re-creation of an ancient Chinese folktale has hooked legions of children, teachers, and parents, who return, generation after generation, to learn about the danger of having such an honorable name as Tikki tikki tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo.

 
Tikki Tikki Tembo is the winner of the 1968 Boston Globe - Horn Book Award for Picture Books.

About the Author

The late Arlene Mosel 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 put down her own retelling, which became her first book for children.

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.

RC Cook, May 24, 2009 (view all comments by RC Cook)
It was a tradition in our household for my older siblings to read to the younger siblings; and for my Mom to read to all of us. This book was one of our favorites to hear from multiple readers because of the rhythmic format and tongue-twisting name.

It gets more and more interesting as the story goes on b/c it becomes increasingly difficult to say that name over and over again. Lots of giggles to be heard by your listeners for sure.
