Published by Wayland (Publishers) Ltd, 2010
Tilly has chickenpox and is feeling very itchy all over. Mum and dad and brother Todd keep telling her not to itch, but it is difficult. Mum finds an answer of sorts. They make sock puppets with old socks, glue and buttons, and when she has them on her hands, she can't itch! Whether this ploy will work long term we never know, but she and mum enjoy making the puppets, and other children will enjoy seeing Tilly in the same predicament they are suffering. Lots of colourful and expressive pictures.
Age: 3+
