This snail may be small, but she’s determined to see the world – so she hitches a lift on the tail of an enormous whale. It’s an unlikely partnership, but when the whale gets into difficulties he discovers just how good a friend a snail can be . . .
Perfect for classroom use, this whale-sized edition includes activity ideas, and words and music for the Snail and the Whale Song.
