A very fun read. I love reading this aloud to my children. It best suits 18 months to 4 years. Wonderful rhymes, a lilting speed to the prose, and many parts that the children love to shout out themselves. I love the fact that it encourages storytelling and imagination in little ones, too. There is no one out there that comes close to this duo... The best storyteller/artist combo ever, in my opinion.

This book was very well written. My 7 year old grandson enjoyed the story very much and certainly learned why he should not cry wolf.

Like all of Julia Donaldson's books, Tiddler is catchy and cute! My daughter loves to repeat the lines that Tiddler says! The accompanying illustrations are amazing (Axel Scheffler will never let you down!). Great book. I highly recommend it.

Fabulous Book to Share With Your Child May 30 2008
By antiomi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My son got this book for his 3rd birthday, and it quickly became both his and my favorite. The story is a cute one -- a little fish named Tiddler tells elaborate stories about why he's late to school every day. Then one day he is caught in a fisherman's net and then lost in the ocean. Then he hears someone telling one of his tall tales, and he traces his own story back home.

The book rhymes and has repeating text, so even the smallest kid can "read along." The pictures are gorgeous, imaginative and full of details for little eyes to notice. The story is fun for kids and really very touching for adults. Put a child on your lap and read this with them . . . over and over and over again.

Another lovely book for you AND the kids to read Nov. 24 2007
By A. Woodley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Julia Donaldson manages to write compelling rhymes which are easily read aloud and enjoyed by Adults and children. In this great fun book Tiddler is a small fish in a school with Miss Skate - but he is always late and always with a big excuse. Unfortunately one day there really IS a problem, a man with a net.

Axel Sheffler gets to let his wonderful illustrations run riot for the underwater illustrations. His rich pcitures are really compelling and great fun detail for the kids to pick up. I don't think any book with beat Room on the Broom (another Donaldson/Sheffler book) however it is wonderful to have others. They are fun to read and share

Funny story of an unusual talent. July 11 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's THE FISH WHO CRIED WOLF tells of the smallest ocean fish who tells the tallest tales to explain his tardiness - until one day he really is caught by a fisherman. Can he use his storytelling abilities to escape? Hilarious fish drawings add personality and zest to the funny story of an unusual talent.

Tiddler never cried wolf Oct. 4 2011
By Joanna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I love this story, and so does my four-year-old. However it is sold in England simply as "Tiddler". I feel that renaming it as "The Fish Who Cried Wolf" for the US market really does it a disservice. This is clear from the reviews by those expecting morals from the story that were neither intended nor implied in its original format. I see it as a celebration of creativity and the often distracted and nonconformist behaviours of those who are very creative. Tiddler is not caught out because of his exaggerations, as this new title implies. He is caught out because he is daydreaming, and he is saved by the spectacular and memorable nature of his exaggerations. HUGE difference.

HE FISH WHO CIED WOLF July 10 2009
By Luca's Nana - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A friends daughter introduced me to Julia Donaldson about 10 years ago. She loved them and I bought the books for my grandchildren who also adore them. The repetative text is wonderful for small children and this purchase was for the 4 year old son of another friend. I think we have all Julia's books and all are firm favourites.
