Meet Dr. Ridiculopickulopot, a clumsy but loveable doctor who bumbles through his day, stumbling over shoes, lunchboxes, and other obstacles while treating his patients. Meet the boy, who sits diminutively in the doctor’s office, trying to melt into the furniture to avoid the terrifying likelihood of today’s doctor visit: The Shot.
Nobody likes shots, or bumbling, but the struggles of both Dr. Ridiculopickulopot and the boy show us, in a humorous and endearing manner, how they each confront their troubles with grace and humility. Through a series of mishaps, the doctor gains empathy for his patients. At the same time, the boy learns that doctors and shots should not be feared, and that vaccination is important. The antics of Dr. Ridiculopickulopot are sing-songy so preschool and early grade school kids can repeat the words, or at least have a laugh trying!
