About this deal

This prompted me to unearth some plays I’d written for a school reading group, and since then I’ve had 20 plays published. THE SNAIL AND THE WHALE is the much loved classic that shows us a restless young snail who has ambitions to travel the world. When they went underwater the snail was still safe and she was much admired by passing stripy fish and sharks with hideous grins. The children, their teacher, and the firemen all work together and the whale and the snail are set off safely on their adventure once again.

Then one day the whale lost his way and encountered speedboats and people having fun; he was so disorientated that he ended up, with the tide slipping away, on the beach. The Snail and the Whale has also been adapted into an unabridged audiobook, a stage play and translated into British Sign Language. The snail tried to encourage him to get off the beach but he replied that he was too big and therefore unable to do so. A humpback whale, immensely long, Who sang to the snail a wonderful song Of shimmering ice and coral caves And shooting stars and enormous waves. This book by the award-winning Gruffalo partnership is about a tiny snail who longs to see the world, and the enormous grey-blue humpback whale who gives him a lift on his tail.And once home they gathered all the snails together and set off once again on a communal journey … I wonder what will happen this time. And she gazed at the sky, the sea, the land, The waves and the caves and the golden sand, She gazed and gazed, amazed by it all, And she said to the whale, “I feel so small.

The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler is a wonderful rhyming story about a sea snail that is eager to travel the world. Then, it becomes an environmental cautionary tale as the whale is upset by speed boaters and ends up beached.She crawls off determinedly, to a school where she alerts the children by writing: “Save the Whale”. Together they go on a world-wide ocean journey, past icebergs and volcanoes, sharks and penguins until the snail feels very small in the vastness of the world. The book won the Early Years award for the best pre-school book in 2004, the Blue Peter award for Best Book to Read Aloud, 2005, [2] and the Giverny award for Best Science Picture Book 2007.

Together they go on an amazing journey, past icebergs and volcanoes, sharks and penguins, the little snail feels so small in the vastness of the world. The whale provides her with the answer; seeing her advertisement on the rocks, he says to her, 'Come sail with me.This is a story which suggests however small you are and however big the world is you can make a difference. Description: A half hour animated film for all the family based on the much-loved book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. However when disasters strikes and the whale gets stuck on the beach, the little snail uses its initiative and finds a way to get help for the whale. We want a song about throwing crumpled-up wrapping paper into the bin” was a typical request from the BBC.

This is one of my favourites out of all the books I have written for Axel Scheffler to illustrate, perhaps because I feel I have captured something of the soulful whimsy of the Edward Lear poems I enjoyed as a child. 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. From the creators of the Gruffalo, a wonderful inspirational book with beautiful environmental messages.This precipitates an epic journey that sees the snail and the whale in icy seas, observing mountains and golden sands on the shore, under the sea admiring the sea-life, surviving a thunderstorm and avoiding pleasure seekers in a holiday resort.
