Icky Sticky Monster by Jo Lodge

Age Range: 3 to 5

Icky Sticky Monster is a very funny pop up book with a rhyming text that is easy to read and has suitably revolting language for Icky’s actions! The paper engineering is amazing and my daughter loves helping Icky to eat rubbish and to pick his nose! Bright and bold colours attract young readers to the pictures and Icky is cute and not at all scary. Children love him because he does such disgusting things!

The Story: Icky Sticky Monster is really revolting! He hides in the toilet, he picks his nose, he eats the rubbish, he drinks one of the most revolting concoctions imaginable and then he wants to give you a kiss!

This is a really ‘yucky’ book which will appeal to any child  who has a lavatorial sense of humour (but maybe won’t appeal so much to a parent!). I love reading this book to children who have never seen it before, it is great to see their reactions to Icky’s revolting behaviour and the kiss that Icky wants to give on the final page! When I have read the book in a group situation the children all want to have a turn at making him move.

You could have great fun in the classroom coming up with ingredients for Icky’s favourite drink, I’m not sure whether you could make it taste any worse than it already does!
