Praise For…


Praise for The Fish Who Cried Wolf"A charmingly illustrated story about a plain gray fish who 'blew small bubbles' but 'told tall tales..." Donaldson's gently paced cautionary tale is populated by Scheffler's comical undersea creatures... and the effect is always amusing." -- New York Times Book Review"Donaldson's rhyming text is crisp and clean, leaving plenty of metaphorical room for Scheffler's expansively imagined art. Always gifted at conjuring up entire worlds (even his spot illustrations feel animated and lovingly detailed), he creates an ocean effervescent with texture, color and vividly expressive personalities. And Tiddler is an excellent reader surrogate: spunky, wide-eyed and ultimately triumphant." -- Publishers Weekly"The colorful, detailed illustrations feature an endearing cast of undersea denizens with the text woven through on clean white space... An engaging book to share." -- School Library Journal
