Snail and the Whale

Written by Julia Donaldson

Illustrated by Axel Scheffler

Featured Books for 3+ readers

LoveReading View on Snail and the Whale

If bestsellers were decided upon by the number of prestigious awards a book had won then this one, with echoes of Edward Lear would be the blockbuster of all time.  Julia really is a past-master of rhyme whilst Axel’s illustrations complement the text quite brilliantly.  A book and CD pack is also available.
