The Fish Who Cried Wolf

Donaldson, Julia.  The Fish Who Cried Wolf.  Illustrated by Axel Scheffler.  New York:  Scholastic, 2008.  ISBN:  978-0-439-92825-0.

A small fish with a penchant for telling big tales, Tiddler has a tendency to wow his classmates with stories of amazing escapades that cause him to be late for school.  When he really meets up with adventure and finds himself far from home his reputation as a storyteller saves the day.  But will his schoolmates ever believe him?  With steady gentle rhyme and intensely detailed illustrations, the team of Donaldson and Scheffler (see May 22, 2008 Where’s My Mom?) work their magic again on this variation of the traditional boy who cried wolf theme.  The underwater world of Tiddler is packed with spiny, slippery, colorful inhabitants who are full of personality who invite the reader to swim along.  The Fish Who Cried Wolf can be found with the new books at JUV D6758fi.The Fish Who Cried Wolf
