Thoroughly charming story with beautiful music

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tikki Tikki Tembo?

Whenever the long name of the first born is recited

What does Peter Thomas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The incredulity of the long name...to hear it being recited, brings awe to the kids who are listening to the story...

A favorite since I was a child with books on tape

I remember following along to this via a book on tape that chimed to let you know when to turn the page. wonderful story.
