This is a really cute story about a little fish with too much energy. He is driving his mom crazy, so she sends him out into the open sea to swim off some of his energy. While out there he sees many creatures and has lots of adventures. The artwork in this book is so colorful and silly it makes the book even more enjoyable. ( )

In my opinion this is a good book. I liked how the author’s language was patterned when describing Tiddler’s adventure through the sea. For example, Galloway wrote, “He wriggled and squiggled, he darted and giggled…He dived and he flipped, he leapt and he dipped.” I also liked the characterization in this story because Tiddler and his mother were believable characters. The mother was “fed up” with Tiddler so she told him to “go out into the sea and swim till you’re tired, but watch out for the Big Fish” Tiddler’s mom wanted to make sure he was safe while he was out which is believable because most mothers would do the same. Tiddler’s character was believable because he is young and didn’t listen to his mother. He swam right into the Big Fish’s mouth. This is realistic because many children are not as careful as they should be and don’t always listen to their parents. Overall, the big idea of this story is that you should listen to your parents. This is evident when Tiddler swims into the Big Fishes mouth and gets scared. His mother told him to be careful and to watch out for the fish, but he did not listen. ( )

I love using this book to introduce the concept of how we fidget and the many words we use to express ourselves! Fun watching students practice the fidget! ( )

This book is about a fish that has so much energy, it gets him trapped in another bigger fishes belly. But then his fidgeting come in handy when he is stuck and the big fish gets so aggravated and burps the little fish up. ( )
