Tiddler is an energetic fish that is constantly in motion. One day his mom has had enough of his wiggling and jiggling and decides to send him out to sea to use up some of his energy. She tells him, “Go and swim till you’re tired, but watch out for the Big Fish!” Tiddler sets out to explore the sea. Diving, gliding and leaping all over the depths of the ocean he finds many interesting sea creatures. Tiddler tries to get a starfish and crab to play with him but they scuttle off. At last he discovers a big, dark cave and his curiosity gets the best of him. He swims in and …. “SNAP! Everything goes dark.” Tiddler finds himself trapped in the belly of a big fish. Can Tiddler fidget his way out? Readers will be surprised to find out how Tiddler’s adventure ends. Fidgety Fish is Ruth Galloway’s first children’s book and her message that we are all special just the way we are will resonate with parents and children. The bright, bold pictures and action words make this a great read aloud for preschool children.
