We enter into this existence alone, which our children find strange. They are lost, have problems fitting in, and often struggle to make friends. In the book Squiggle the Tiggle, written by Aaron Vine, DVM, we meet a young squiggle and journey with him as he seeks a friend.

After fifty days in Pibnee Land, a purple and pink egg of a Tiggle started to jiggle, and this was how Squiggle came to be. He had two antennae, which were green and red, respectively, with star-shaped eyes and a pudgy body. He jiggles away when he wants to play, but as Squiggle plays, he realises that he has no friend to jiggle with. He decided to travel through Pibnee Land, looking for a friend. He wiggled his way into Yellow Bay and came across fish, and a particular green fish said he looked tasty. He got away from the fish, and then he met some bubbles. Surprisingly, a bubble spoke, and his name was Bubble Dend, a bubble guide who offered to take Squiggle the Tiggle anywhere he wanted. From reading this book, we know if Squiggle finds friends and what challenges he encounters.

This fictional story was very interesting, and I admire the creative approach to putting this book together. The author was able to portray a young child's life and some challenges, which would teach our young ones a lot. I liked the graphic quality of the images contained in this book, and I commend the illustrator for a job well done. I like the enlightening nature of the book. Children could learn about clouds being responsible for the rain, and the author emphasized the importance of gratitude in this book. There are a lot of moral lessons that young readers could learn from after reading this book.

I had no dislikes for this book, and I am rating it 5 out of 5 stars considering the positives listed above. I also did not encounter any grammatical errors while reading it, which proves it was exceptionally well edited. I recommend this book to children from the ages of 4 to 10 because I believe it relates best to this age group.
