Waterstones Says

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.

"How I long to sail!" said the tiny snail.

The Snail and the Whale is a delightful tale of adventure and friendship by the unparalleled picture book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo.

One little snail longs to see the world and hitches a lift on the tail of an enormous whale. Together they go 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 the tiny snail's big plan that saves the day.

This edition features the classic story with a stunning, redesigned cover and beautiful finish, making it a must-have addition to the bookshelves of all Donaldson and Scheffler fans - big and small!

Also available with redesigned covers are: The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo's Child, Room on the Broom, The Smartest Giant in Town, Monkey Puzzle, Charlie Cook's Favourite Book, and A Squash and a Squeeze.

A beautifully presented version of a book my children already loved. Receiving the board book has given my children a new love of the story, they we particularly enamoured by the page revealing the whale from nowhere.... More
