9781405050531: Snail and the Whale

One tiny snail longs to see the world and hitches a lift on the tail of a 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 who saves the day.

About the Author:

Julia Donaldson is one of the UK's most successful picture book authors, whose titles regularly appear at the top of bestseller lists -- most notably, the acknowledged modern classic, THE GRUFFALO. Her other picture books in collaboration with Axel Scheffler include ROOM ON THE BROOM, THE SMARTEST GIANT IN TOWN and MONKEY PUZZLE - all available on CD. Axel Scheffler has achieved worldwide acclaim for his illustrations, and his books have been translated into over 20 languages.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3--A tiny mollusk that longs to see the world hitches a ride aboard a humpback whale in this charming picture book. After seeing far-off islands, underwater caves, and storm-filled skies, the snail feels impossibly small--until the whale is beached in a harbor, and she saves the day by writing a note on the blackboard of a nearby school to summon help. The message that even the smallest among us can help others will not be lost on children, and neither will the poetic language: "A humpback whale, immensely long,/Who sang to the snail a wonderful song/Of shimmering ice and coral caves/And shooting stars and enormous waves." Donaldson's smooth, sprightly rhyming scheme buoys the story and never falters. The flat, cartoonish look of Scheffler's multimedia illustrations perfectly complements the tone of the text. The rollicking language and bright pictures make this a great choice for reading aloud.--Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia
