"Lovely beautiful book!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Bought this for my daughter as she enjoyed the board book so i wanted to buy it again in paperback for her. I got this when it was on sale for the same price as the other non aniversary version of this book so obviously chose this one! Lovely large book with vivid pictures. Beautiful shiny metalic cover. Honestly such a lovely book inside & out. Julia donaldson is a firm fave the moment!

Description

"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. The Snail and the Whale 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 15th Anniversary Edition features the classic story alongside never-before-seen drawings from Axel Scheffler's sketchbook, a letter from Julia Donaldson, and a shiny foil cover.
