The smallest fish can tell the tallest tales ... "Sorry I'm late, Miss. I set off really early but on the way to school I was captured by a squid. I wriggled and I struggled till a turtle came and rescued me." "Oh, no, he didn't." "OH, YES, HE DID." Tiddler is a little fish with a BIG imagination! What ever will he come up with next?
The underwater world was something new for me...I wondered whether it should all be tinted blue - but then I decided to do the colours as usual - as if it was above water. I got some support finding references for all the fish from the publisher - they produced a little folder where I could look them up - but then my animals are never terribly naturalistic.
