A great book that my daughter really enjoyed ,the pictures are detailed and plenty to talk about with just the pictures, phrases are repeated through the book which is great as my daughter joins in with them .
Daughter says “I like all the pictures and it is a rhyming story and I like to shout ‘Tiddler,Tiddler, Tiddlers late!’ “

Tiddler is a little fish who tells tall tales about big adventures.  He's a lovable fish, who is late for school everyday, and always has a story ready for the teacher.  There is repetition, after each excuse the other fish in the class respond with 'it's just a story', which makes it easy to follow for my 2 year old.  

My four year old loves the story, and can recite the whole thing from memory after listening to it on every car journey.  The CD also has the 'mermaids song', which is the story as sung by a mermaid, which we have listened to on repeat for days!

The 'Underwater Exploring Game' encourages activity by asking if 'you can snap like a lobster' , etc and my kids love to join in with it.  This is one of our favourite Julia Donaldson stories.

A real hit with my daughter! She loved the CD with the book which really helped retain her interest. She is very interested in the sea at the moment so it was great to help her find all the diffferent types of creatures & start to name them. Lovely illustrations & ryhmes as you'd expect.

This book is a lovely, rhyming story about a fish called Tiddler and a whole host of other creatures who live under the sea. The repetition and rhyme makes it great for joining in with and memorable for young children.  The illustrations are bright and colourful.  A funny tale which captivates listeners.
