Tiddler

The funny and fabulous rhyming picture book from the number one bestselling author and illustrator of The Gruffalo, Stick Man and Zog. 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!

Every day he tells a tall tale.

But did he really ride a seahorse? Did he really meet a mermaid?

And who will believe him when he really does get captured in a net?

Our Review Panel says...

Tiddler is a fish who is always late for school. Every day he arrives with a different tall story about why he is not there on time, until one day he finds himself caught up in a big adventure that will make him very, very late indeed! A fun, rhyming story with a repeated refrain.
