Titch the Itch
When Titch discovers that no one in his family wants him, he sets off on a journey to find someone – anyone – who would be willing to live with an itch. With every step he grows less hopeful. That is, until he meets an old friend.
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 ...more
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. ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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.

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.
