The Ticklafuss

some free verse by Isaac, age 10

There are dogs, cats, and kangaroos
But
The things I like most are the Tigills
Like the Tooflugar and the Tromparoo
But
The one I fear is the Ticklafuss
With its wiggly, squiggly arms
And its whirly, squirrely fingers.
What, Mom?
Who's there?
What!
The Ticklafuss!

This sounds a little Seuss-y. Love the addition of poetry to the blog!

Great-sounding words! And love that one eye and one squiggly arm -- my imagination fills in the rest because you have given me wonderful words and illustration!

A very strong poem.
