The smallest fish can tell the tallest tales ...
"Sorry I'm late, Miss. I set off really early but on the way to school
I was captured by a squid. I wriggled and I struggled till
a turtle came and rescued me."
"Oh, no, he didn't." "OH, YES, HE DID."

Tiddler is a little fish with a BIG imagination! What ever will he
come up with next?

This runaway bestseller is now available as a board book.

Tiddler and his tall tales proved to be the most popular book brought along on a family holiday this summer. Children ages 1-8 all wanted to read it - and the adults loved it also! The lovely illustrations and the thick, sturdy board pages make it perfect for little hands. The story flows beautiful with the catchy rhymes and the opportunity to join in with the words pantomime style. Tiddler? Tiddler? Tiddler's late!

Another lovely Julia Donaldson/Axel Scheffler book. This is one of my daughter's favourites as it's brightly coloured with lots of different fish to find and look at. The story is of a little fish who is always running late with lots of excuses which make us laugh.  The repetitiveness of the story (the fish meets lots of people who then pass on his stories) means that my daughter is able to pre-empt some of the words and is delighted when she does.  A great book to read together.

This is a lovely book about a fish called tiddler who told tall tales! Everyone in our house loved this book especially my 2 year old especially when he found the gruffallo fish! Beautifully written and illustrated. A must for any child no matter the age

I discovered that these books come as board books which makes them really durable as this is a firm favourite that has been read so many times.
Lovely Tiddler, a little fish takes us on so many wild adventures that his friends just don't believe his tall tales. All the underwater characters are lovely and the rhyming, repetitive nature of the book means that your child can join in with the story along the way.
This is a story which has lasted many years in our family. I even think my 8 year old is secretly pleased when his younger brothers choose this at bedtime!
