Tailypo... tailypo... I want my tailypo...

My sister and I have been looking for this children's book forever. I finally found it today after much trial and error on Google.

We read it in elementary school and remember it as being pronounced "tally-pole" (instead of "taily-po"). Regardless, it scared us shitless. Read all the reviews and you'll see that other kids have been horribly traumatized by it as well. To this day, if my sister and I are outside at night and one of us says to the other: “tally-pole, tally-pole, I want my tally-pole,” the result is almost always a punch in the shoulder accompanied by “Shut up! That’s not funny!”
