Editorial Reviews

Praise for Tiddler: The story-telling fish

"A charmingly illustrated story about a plain gray fish . . . Donaldson''s gently paced cautionary tale is populated by Scheffler''s comical undersea creatures . . . and the effect is always amusing." -The New York Times Book Review

"Donaldson''s rhyming text is crisp and clean, leaving plenty of metaphorical room for Scheffler''s expansively imagined art . . . he creates an ocean effervescent with texture, color and vividly expressive personalities. And Tiddler is an excellent reader surrogate: spunky, wide-eyed and ultimately triumphant." -Publishers Weekly

"The colorful, detailed illustrations feature an endearing cast of undersea denizens with the text woven through on clean white space . . . . An engaging book to share." -School Library Journal
