Icky, Yucky, Mucky! at Hill Spring International School, Mumbai
Icky Yucky Mucky Table

Icky, Yucky, Mucky! goes to Hill Spring International School.

Icky, Yucky, Mucky! visited the wonderful library at Hill Spring International School for  a dramatised reading by Natasha Sharma, author of the deliciously gooey story Icky, Yucky, Mucky! Kindergarten and grades I and II were in hysterics to see the well moustachioed Maharaja Icky slurping over the pickles, burping and juggling rosogullas.

Natasha Sharma as Maharaja Icky

Natasha Sharma as Maharaja Icky had the kids enthralled.

Their sporting librarian Ms. Soonawala, as Maharani Yucky, accompanied the Maharaja in his mess. This was one noisy library for two delightful mornings as it resounded with children laughing and shouting YUCKY! EEEEW! OOOH! NOOOO!

Inspired by the wonderful splotches in the book created by Anitha Balachandran, the children then set about making Splotch Monsters. It was great to see much creativity emerging with Splotches with a dozen eyes, great big moustaches and even one demure little girl splotch. The library now has its very own Icky, Yucky, Mucky! wall.
