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.

Arlene Mosel (1921-1996) 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 write her own retelling, and Tikki Tikki Tembo became her first book for children. The book was named an American Library Association Notable Book and won the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. In 1997,The New York Times named it one of the best 50 childrenís books of the previous 50 years. Mosel was also the author ofThe Funny Little Woman, which won the 1973 Caldecott Medal for Blair Lentís illustrations and was recognized as an Honor Book by the Hans Christian Andersen International Childrenís Book Awards. Mosel was an associate professor of library science at Case Western Reserve University. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Mosel died in Indianapolis in 1996.
Blair Lent began illustrating picture books in the 1960s. He received the Caldecott Medal in 1973 forThe Funny Little Woman, by Arlene Mosel, and has also been awarded three Caldecott Honors. He lives and works in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

  • Tikki Tikki Tembo no sa rembo chari bari ruchi

    This is a great Chinese story! I read it every year. The children love to sa Tikki Tikki Tembo . . .. This book is a Cadecott medal winner. I have it in soft back and was wearing out so I wanted one in hardback. I have a cassette that goes with it and this makes it even better. I'm not sure if Overstock sells an audio for it.

  • Tikki Tikki Tembo

    Tikki Tikki Tembo was always a favorite when I taught kindergarten. It is now the favorite of my grands. There is something to the rhythm of the words that entrances little kids. The illustrations are also very rich in color and details. Even if you don't have kids you will enjoy this book or buy it just in case a relative or a friend brings a child to visit. That way you can claim it really isn't one of yours!

    This is a wonderful story that every child should know. I had it when I was younger and now give it as a gift to many children in my life. A good learning tool for siblings.
