Jekklenog is very very big. He has seven eyes, and his green fur is infested with ladybugs. He can only say, "Jekklenog want read" because he will only stop banging his chest and eating everything in sight when someone reads him a story.

Jekklenog is very hairy,
But he's really not that scary.
His fur is a slimy green,
But don't let that fool you,
He's not mean.

Jekklenog wants just one thing,
And it's something you can bring!
The only time you will fail,
Is if you tell a boring tale!
