The thrilling tale of a tiny snail and a great big grey-blue humpback whale...

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

This is the tale of a tiny snail and a great big whale. The snail may be small, but she has huge dreams of seeing the world. So she hitches a ride on a friendly whale s back to see amazing sights. 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. The creators of The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom have teamed up again to bring you this whale of a tale.

          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.
