Derring-Do? I Dare You! by Nicole Maubert
LOOK AT THAT HAIRY SPIDER!
I DARE YOU TO TOUCH IT!
Whether it's scaly and scary,
Or one-eyed and hairy,
A monster who is mean,
A scaly snake that's green,
A critter whose tongue is pink and sticky,
A thing who is both ghastly and icky,
It's a DARE!
With a lineup of slightly scary, yet super silly critters, Nicole Maubert tempts young tots to try out their tactile derring-do, in a board book with touchy-feely surfaces on every page--slippery sharp shark's teeth, witchy warts, and best of all, a wolf whose toothy jaws pop up from the page. But what's the scariest thing you'll see in this book? Turn to the mirror on the last page and say AAAARRRGGHHH! as loudly as you can... for a big surprise!
Maubert's I Dare You! (Twirl Books, 2016 (Am. ed.) uses rhymes and all kinds of surfaces in this board book right on the touch-and-feel target for the approaching scary season.
