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
