Waterstones Says

Adorned with a commemorative wintry cover design, this special festive edition of the Donaldson/Scheffler favourite – published to coincide with the Christmas Day BBC adaptation - makes an ideal Christmas gift for all little bookworms. The charming tale of a crustacean with wanderlust and her obliging whale-sized transportation, The Snail and the Whale is a beautifully pitched hymn to friendship and adventure that boasts some of Julia Donaldson’s most perfect rhyming couplets. A modern classic and a treat for young and old alike.

The Snail and the Whale is a delightful tale of adventure and friendship from the bestselling Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo. This special festive edition features the classic story with a gorgeous wintry cover design - perfect for sharing together with the whole family.

This is the tale of a tiny snail
And a great big grey-blue humpback whale . . .

When one little snail longs to see the big wide world, she hitches a lift on the tail of an enormous whale. Together, they set sail on an amazing journey, past icebergs and volcanoes, sharks and penguins, and the little snail feels so small in the vastness of the world. But when disaster strikes and the whale is beached in a bay, it's up to the tiny snail to save the day.

Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's brilliant story of unlikely friendship and life-changing adventure will be brought to life on BBC One this Christmas, starring Sally Hawkins, Rob Brydon, Cariad Lloyd and Dame Diana Rigg.

With a gorgeous wintry cover design, The Snail and the Whale Festive Edition is perfect for reading together.
