Tiddler is a very fidgety fish. So much so, that when his mother has had enough, she sends him out exploring, reminding him to be careful of "the Big Fish." He comes across several sea creatures before his curiosity gets the better of him and he enters a big, dark cave. When Tiddler hears a loud snap, and everything suddenly goes dark, he realizes he is in the belly of "the Big Fish"! Now more fidgety than ever, Tiddler jumps and bumps, tumbles and turns inside the belly of the fish, causing more than a bit of a disturbance until--"BURP! The big fish has had enough of Tiddler. This latest addition to the Storytime Board Book series is an adaptation of the best selling picture book!

Ruth Galloway is the author and illustrator of Fidgety Fish and Smiley Shark, both published by Little Tiger Press. She lives in Oxfordshire with her husband and son.From School Library Journal:
Preschool-Grade 3--A little fish is brimming with energy and curiosity and so wriggly and giggly that his mom sends him out of their sea cave to swim until he is tired. She warns him, however, to beware of the Big Fish. Joyfully exploring the ocean depths with its variety of interesting creatures, Tiddler spots a large black opening and pops inside, thinking it is a cave like his own. It isn't. Trapped, he thrashes and jumps, upsetting the Big Fish's stomach severely and causing a giant burp, which propels him out and swiftly home, ready for a nap. With its vivid language, many rhyming and onomatopoetic words, brisk pace, and exclamatory style, the book is perfect for reading aloud. Lively double-page, full-page, and vignette watercolor illustrations in brilliant shades match the verve of the text. With their white goggle eyes and smiley faces, the characters are funny and appealing.
