      Comments about The Snail And the Whale:

      I bought this for a 2 year old as a gift. However, it it is not just a picture book. It has the most amazing rhyming story of adventure and environmental protection! There is also an underlying storyline about moving out of one's comfort zone. Suits 4 - 5 years and up.

        Comments about The Snail And the Whale:

        This is a good book with a captivating story line. Presently I am finding it a bit too long for my 13mth old. Im sure he will get more enjoyment from this book as he gets older. I have put it away for now. This book is probably more suited to the 2-3yr old age group. The little one does love the colourful and detailed illustrations.

              Great bedtime story for my 5yr old. Lovely story line with meaning and plenty of subjects for discussion. The illustrations are very good too.
