The Snail and the Whale.
I picked up this book in a charity shop a few weeks ago knowing that we like the Donaldson-Sheffler team. It seemed a little old for my kids to understand, but they could grow into it.
I put it on the shelf without any announcement. My son found it this week and we have been reading it regularly ever since.
This is a sweet story of a little snail who takes a tour of the world with a whale. It is beautiful, but it makes the snail feel so small and insignificant. Then trouble happens and it is up to the snail to save the day. Can a little snail really make a difference?
In true Donaldson fashion, this story is told in sing-song rhyme with beautiful illustrations by Axel Scheffler (who also illustrated The Gruffalo, written by Julia Donaldson).
