Rhythmical Fishy Tale,
This review is from: Tiddler (Hardcover)
This is the terrific story of Tiddler who `blows small bubbles but tells tale tails'. Each day he is late for school excusing it with increasingly wild stories that none of his friends believe but Little Johnny Dory loves Tiddler's stories and tells them to his Granny who tells them to others in the ocean, who in turn tell them to yet others until Tiddler's tall stories bring him home again when he is lost and afraid.
With Axel Scheffler's wonderfully vivid drawings, including the Gruffalo fish chasing Tiddler round a rock, and Donaldson's rhythmical poetry this is a great story for Pre-School and Key Stage 1 children. We've only had it 3 days and it is now read several times before and after school with much audience participation.
