Overview

Tiddler is a very fidgety fish. So much so, that when his mother has had enough, she sends him out into the sea to swim, “Watch out for the Big Fish” she warns. Tiddler flips and glides faster than a rocket. He comes across several sea creatures before his curiosity gets the better of him and he enters a big, dark cave… When Tiddler hears a loud snap, and everything suddenly goes dark, he realizes he is in the belly of “the Big Fish”! Now more fidgety than ever, Tiddler jumps and bumps, tumbles and turns inside the belly of the fish, causing more than a bit of a disturbance until – BURP! The big fish has had enough of Tiddler.

Sent out for a swim in the deep sea, Tiddler, a young fish who just can't keep still, sees many interesting creatures and one very dark cave.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This brightly colored board book measures 6 1/2" by 6 1/2". The front edges are nicely rounded for small children. It is the story of a little fish so full of energy that his mother suggests he swim around for a while until he becomes tired. He swims out of his cave and practices some loops and spurts, encounters some unfamiliar sea creatures, and finally swims into the mouth of another cave. Unfortunately it is not a cave, but the inside of another fish. Fortunately the little fish does not settle well with the big fish, who ejects him, and he swims safely back home. The back cover says it is written with rhyming and onomatopoetic words, which is the publishers way of suggesting the book uses interesting ways of putting words together to make them fun to read: "He dived and he flipped, he leapt and he dipped," or, "He wiggled and squiggled, he darted and giggled." The reader will enjoy saying the words and they will be fun to hear. 2005, Tiger Tales, Ages 1 to 4.
—Eleanor Heldrich
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-A little fish is brimming with energy and curiosity and so wriggly and giggly that his mom sends him out of their sea cave to swim until he is tired. She warns him, however, to beware of the Big Fish. Joyfully exploring the ocean depths with its variety of interesting creatures, Tiddler spots a large black opening and pops inside, thinking it is a cave like his own. It isn't. Trapped, he thrashes and jumps, upsetting the Big Fish's stomach severely and causing a giant burp, which propels him out and swiftly home, ready for a nap. With its vivid language, many rhyming and onomatopoetic words, brisk pace, and exclamatory style, the book is perfect for reading aloud. Lively double-page, full-page, and vignette watercolor illustrations in brilliant shades match the verve of the text. With their white goggle eyes and smiley faces, the characters are funny and appealing.-Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    Great and Fun!

    I am purchasing this in hard cover because the paperback I got through scholastic is in tatters. My 3.5 yr old and 19 month old both love it, and frequently fight over who gets it. Today, my youngest has 'won the day' and is carrying it with her everywhere so the other can't have it. It's very fun (and quick) to read, and the illustrations are very vibrant and intersting to look at. Well done!
