Tiddler is our two-year old, and it is also the name of a book that we love. Written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, Tiddler is a wonderfully rhythmic, rhyming story, perfect for reading aloud. Tiddler is a little fish who is always telling stories. No-one believes him, but one day when he is in trouble his trail of stories helps him find his way home. The detailed illustrations of so many different sea creatures are very appealing, and for those who are already familiar with The Gruffalo, also by Donaldson and Scheffler, there is a Gruffalo fish to look out for as well.
