Description

Enjoy the adventures of the tiny snail and the great big grey-blue humpback whale with The Snail and the Whale: Book and Toy Gift Set. Including a mini gift hardback of the classic story and a cuddly whale toy, this is the perfect gift for Christmas!

One little snail longs to see the world and hitches a lift on the tail of an enormous 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's big plan that saves the day!

The Snail and the Whale is a delightful tale of adventure and friendship from the unparalleled picture-book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo. This brilliant story of unlikely friendship and life-changing adventure has been brought to life on BBC One in an animation starring Sally Hawkins, Rob Brydon, Cariad Lloyd and Dame Diana Rigg.

Join in the adventure with this wonderful book and toy gift set which includes a mini gift hardback edition of the story and a cuddly whale plush - perfect to cuddle whilst reading!
