This snail may be small, but she's determined to see the world - so she hitches a lift on the tail of an enormous whale. It's an unlikely partnership, but when the whale gets into difficulties he discovers just how good a friend a snail can be . . .

Perfect for classroom use, The Snail and the Whale Big Book is a whale-sized edition of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's The Snail and the Whale, and includes activity ideas, and words and music for the Snail and the Whale Song.
