Tikki Tikki Tembo - Arlene Mosel, Blair Lent Taking a trip down memory lane, I re-read this as an adult. I still enjoy the story and the whimsical illustrations, but I did not like the color scheme of the art. It reminded me of an old couch. Still worth a read, though, and now that I'm older, I found the reaction of the boys' mother to their accidents humorous.
