The Lovereading4Kids comment

Best-selling author/ illustrator of The Gruffalo have created a fantastic new character with Tiddler, the little fish who tells some big stories! Showcasing their remarkable talent at the top of their game, they tell the story of tiddler with humour, character and the all important read-out-loud factor. A bouncy, rhyming text delights while the jewel bright illustrations bring alive the feeling of life on the sea bed.


Tiddler by Julia Donaldson

Tiddler is a little fish with a big imagination. He may be small but he tells the tallest tales. See if you believe Tiddler's story.
