Celebrate the 20th birthday of the bestselling classic The Snail and the Whale, with this special anniversary edition of the story, including bonus content.
"How I long to sail!" said the tiny snail.
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 is a delightful tale of adventure and friendship by the unparalleled picture book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo.
The Snail and the Whale 20th Anniversary Edition features the classic story with a stunning foil cover as well as extra-special bonus content including a letter from the author and some early sketches from the illustrator to celebrate the anniversary year.
