A fun back-to-school adventure from the bestselling creators of The Gruffalo

Tiddler is late to school every day, and he always has an elaborate excuse for his teacher. One day, as Tiddler is thinking up his next story, a net sweeps him up and hauls him far away from his school. How will Tiddler find his way home? All he has to do is follow the trail of his biggest, fishiest story yet!

For every parent or teacher who knows the boundless creativity of a perpetually late child, this shows how telling excuses can turn into telling stories to be shared with friends and family. And with a bouncy, bubbly rhyme and vibrant undersea illustrations, Tiddler is sure to become a summertime, read-aloud favourite.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Stick Man

*"Donaldson and Scheffler''s poignant, suspenseful profile of an inanimate object recalls Laurie Keller or The Velveteen Rabbit. Donaldson''s rhymes never skip a beat, and Scheffler personalizes the many animals, people and settings in his witty watercolors. This yarn could become a December perennial." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

*"Scheffler''s engaging illustrations, Donaldson''s irresistible rhyming text and repeated refrains make this a winning read-aloud that will stick around long after the holiday season." —Kirkus, starred review

"The easy cadence, with a rolling structure and uncomplicated rhymes, will make this endearing picture book a fun read-along, and though Stick Man might object, kids will recognize the near-endless possibilities for fun that a stick presents." —Booklist
