One tiny snail longs to see the world and hitches a lift on the tail of a whale.

Icebergs and volcanoes, storms and sharks the two friends see it all together. And when the whale runs into trouble, the snail proves that even the tiniest creature can help a friend in a very big way.

    Comments about The Snail and the Whale:

    This is a peaceful book but it always has the kids engrossed. I wish it came in BIG book size for my students too. It has a lovely theme about how size doesn't count but it is also about following dreams.
