Product description

Tiddler’s a little fish who likes to tell tall tales. A bit cheeky, but don’t you love to listen? Let Julia and Axel’s tiny ocean hero sweep you off on a wave of rhyming bliss. Tiddler’s a little fish with a very BIG imagination. Every day, he’s late for school. And every day he tells his teacher another tall tale. But did Tiddler really ride a seahorse? Did he truly meet a mermaid? What tale will Tiddler tell next? A true classic: a magical ocean quest. So many fish to spot in Axel’s lovely pictures you won’t know which way to turn your head.

  • A summery favourite by the creators of The Gruffalo
  • Celebrates the imagination and the joys of storytelling
  • Filled with Axel Scheffler’s beautiful ocean artwork
  • “Tiddler is picture-book perfection” – Independent

    Tiddler is always late. He has lots of excuses. It’s good that he could find where he came from following his tales.

    I have read this to my little sister many of times, and, I find that is a brilliant book for little childre age 0-5 and everyone will enjoy it. It teaches you names of lots of different fish, and tells a story of a little fish that is always telling lies. One day, he is telling the truth, but no body at his school will believe him, but his friend, Little Johny Dory does.
