“…'Twas only a niggle…

the teensiest titch…

but that fidgety feeling grew to an ITCH!


"Oh!" cried Tiny Timpkin.

"I've got an itch, a terrible twitch

that naggles and niggles

like fleas with giggles!

It's really a frightfully, feverish patch…

Oh, PLEASE could somebody give me a scratch?" ”


When you have an itch that you just can't scratch, it's great to have somebody else to do it for you. But what do you do when you're last in the scratching queue?


Join Tiny Timpkin, Fuzzy O'Hare and friends, as they try to solve this terribly tickly, naggly-niggly, itchy-twitchy problem!


A fabulous version of The Fidgety Itch was produced by CBeebies Storytime, read by Toni Pearon.
