Titch the Itch is a children's story about an itch nobody wants. When his current family continues to scratch him away he sets off on an adventure to find someone who wants him. After a set of events that leave Titch feeling lost and hopeless, he comes full circle.

Titch the Itch is a cute story with wonderful illustrations. I found the story humorous and entertaining. The book features short, easy-to-read sentences and paragraphs and is appropriate for all ages. The book is specifically for age

Titch the Itch is a poignant, yet humourous tale of friendship, unconditional love, and finding one's place.

Fegan’s Titch the Itch follows the titular character as he searches for friendship and a place to call his own, in this surprisingly touching, yet undeniably funny tale.

Titch is an itch, but not just any itch. Titch is one of those itches that comes out of the blue and sticks around no matter what you do. We meet Titch as he's living with a large family, trying to find friends.

Titch the Itch, written by B.C.R. Fegan and illustrated by Lenny Wen, is a charming children’s picture book about a personified little itch who just wants to make some friends. He adores the family he lives with and tries so hard to ingratiate himself but, unfortunately, the love is unrequited. Disheartened, he leaves the house for the big wide world where he attempts to befriend a number of unsuspecting neighbourhood inhabitants, including a cat and an old lady. Titch is oblivious to the absolu ...more

Titch the Itch by B.C.R Fegan
The formative years are riddled with aimless wandering in search of a place to truly belong. Even as adults, we sometimes feel out of place. That is what makes this book such a perfect choice for children.
It is a story about Titch. He is having a hard time forming lasting relationships, as people just cannot stand him. No one sees beyond his annoying persona. Deep down, he just wants to be a friend. He cannot help his physical nature. He wishes someone would tolerat

Just the thought of having an itch you can’t scratch can be the most annoying thing someone can ever experience. Both people and animals of all types would instantly scratch at the first instance of an itch. In “Titch the Itch”, author B.C.R. Fegan writes from the perspective of a character name Titch, who is actually an itch. The way this book was written, enables the reader to get a better understanding of what it would be and feel like to be something so pesky as an itch. We also learn that t ...more

I have had the pleasure of recieving another one of B. C. R Fegan's books.  I am now officially a keen reader of this author!  Three books and I love them all 🙌

On the first page... Titch is introduced as a 'no-reason-at-all-itch'.  I found this interesting to start with.  A 'no-reason-at-all-itch'.  I know its a minor thought but I thought this was a very cleaver beginning.  He proceeds to try and make friends but nobody wants him around.  Okay lets look at this concept... It is a very good talk

This book had all the potential to be adorable, however I found it to be slightly odd.

There is nothing wrong with the book, and I was very fond the illustrations, I just failed to see a point in the story. At the end, even though we see Titch be the definition of a true friend to those around him, no one returns the gestures to him and he is still friendless at the end of the book.

The lesson that could be taken from the book, I suppose, would be to be a friend like Titch, however I don’t think c

For a Children’s book, Titch and the itch by B.C.R Fegan is a cute story. You get introduced to Titch, the itch that happens out of nowhere. The story personifies Titch and gives him life. He has this big family he stays with jumping to one family member to the other. He then realizes one day that he is not wanted by the family and sets out to find someone who would love him, an itch. The illustration is good except Titch looks like a dust bunny/bug, but overall children will love it.

Titch the Itch by B.C.R. Fegan is a beautifully illustrated book. One that features the story of an Itch. Titch the Itch does his job well. Makes everyone Itch. But his job leaves him feeling lonely. He started out with a large family, then an old lady and dog, and then a park. But every time, he was then left alone. Titch the Itch goes back to the family. He stays with a family member...and nothing that family member does can get rid of him now. He wants to be friends. This children's book was ...more

Titch wants to be your best friend...or rather the best friend of the family he lives with...but, let's just say that they are less than grateful for his presence. After all, Titch IS an itch, and not the easiest of ones to get rid of. This is a surprising story filled with humor, creativity, an adorable itch that refuses to go away, and a message of acceptance...but I can't say that I'm gonna be welcoming any long-term itches into my own life anytime soon. *snicker*

Great story, children will love this.

Titch is that unexplainable itch. That is just the beginning. It's an adorable story and I enjoyed it. It's one that kids will love. I love the graphics as we all wonder (and you know you do) what an itch actually looks like. I love this story, and it can be kind of sad, as Titch is lonely. No one wants him around. It's a story that kids can relate to, whether they read this story on their own, or have it read to them.

Great story about an itch that just wouldn't go away and his loyalties to one particular family who really did not want him. Although Titch is a non-thing, you do develop a certain sympathy for him and his quest to be accepted. Cute ending ...more

You know those irritating itches that come from nowhere? You just suddenly feel something off and have to scratch, if you ignore it, it drives you crazy? That is Titch. He is an itch that jumps from people and animals looking for a place to call his home and have friends. The issue, no one wants an itch around all the time! Poor Titch is scratched away over and over and causes quite the calamity of events. This is his story about how he tries to find his place in the world as an itch. Heartwarmi ...more
