Tiddler

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.

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