Synopsis

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

A special book and CD edition of the bestselling The Snail and the Whale, 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!

The Snail and the Whale Book and CD Pack features the classic story with a stunning redesigned cover and finish, and a story CD read aloud by actress Imelda Staunton, 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.
