Julia Donaldson/Axel Scheffler books are works of art. The stories are written beautifully, rhyming with a rhythm that sets the pace. This ensures that as an adult I do not get bored reading the same stories over and over again as the more familiar the story becomes the more I can work on my expression and how I deliver giving me almost as joyful an experience as that of my son listening to them.

The whale and the snail eventually made their way back to the black rock where they told their tale to the other snails and this resulted in the whale setting sail into the sunset with a colony of snails on his tail! It was indeed a great tail, sorry, a great tale! Read this again (November 2019) as I can't resist the brilliant Donaldson/Scheffler combination.

THE SNAIL AND THE WHALE is the much loved classic that shows us a restless young snail who has ambitions to travel the world.

Summary:When a tiny snail meets a humpback whale, the two travel together to far-off lands. This is the best book my daughter and I have read in a while. She is 4, and I have been reading it to her every day since we got it. We liked it so much that we had to check out all of the other Julia Donaldson books. We also love Room on the Broom. Both of these are fun rhyming books that tell a wonderful story.

The Snail and the Whale is one of the best -- if not THE best -- children's books we've ever read. (And we've read many hundreds by now.) This one excels in every aspect:

1. What a jewel of a story -- about an unlikely friendship, globe-trotting adventure, creative problem-solving and resourcefulness, thinking beyond the confines of one's limitations (perceived or otherwise)...

2. The book is beautifully written. The rhymes and prose flow seamlessly. It's lovely to both read and listen to.

3. The artwork is excellent, too. The pictures are vivid, colorful, and engaging. We've read the book dozens of times by now, and we'll still often notice some new little detail.

This was our first Julia Donaldson book but remains my favorite. The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom have also been hits, and they're also very good. The story and prose quality of The Snail and the Whale are better, in my opinion. But we will try other books by this author. (Thank you for this amazing contribution to children's lit, Julia Donaldson!)

Yet another book by Julia Donaldson to join my kids' favourite books list.

A story about a little snail who longs to see the world beyond the little rock he lives on. All the other snails on the rock try to hold him back, but despite that the snail catches a 'ride' on a whale.

During their adventure the snail realizes how huge the world is.

One day the whale ends up in trouble and the little snail proves again that being small does not stop you from achieving great things, if only you have the will and persistence to achieve them.

The snail saves the whale and they both travel back home. All the other snails seeing them happy, hop on the whale's back to see the world.

Rarely does a book for little ones hit top marks on the three things that matter most, but this one does - 1) vibrant, clear, colorful and engaging drawings, 2) rhymes that really connect, with strong measures, sophisticated structure, and emphasis and flow that works whether read silently or out loud, 3) a heart warming story with multiple positive messages, (self reliance, friendship, resourcefulness, nerve, imagination, and a general sense of generous good heartedness).

Perfect for bedtime, the story starts calmly, leads our snail and whale friends through interesting and exciting adventures, then turns into a rescue drama, moves on to a happy ending, and then winds down with a calm upbeat conclusion. I can feel the grandchild drifting off with a happy smile as the story concludes. Plenty to look at, lots to think about - just a solid, satisfying, engaging and rewarding read for both your youngster and, possibly, you. A very nice choice.

My husband and I love reading this book to our baby--and I am sure our baby will love it when he starts being able to understand as well! I love the epic journey that snail and the whale go on. The story has such wonderful flow and rhythm to it. The rhymes are perfect, never awkward. The illustrations have rich color and are very fun. We love the way all of the birds look with their beady eyes. I did not realize when I bought this book that Julia Donaldson is also the author of The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo's Child, and Room on the Broom. We love The Snail and the Whale (and had read the Gruffalo before) so much that we went and purchased all of Julia Donaldson's other books. Our second favorite is Room on the Broom. We definitely recommend this book and all of Julia Donaldson's books. They are SO clever and a real treat to read over and over again!

This author has several great picture books for kids and this is one of them, although this one isn't my favorite. I think my drawback is that it isn't humorous like some of her others. Regardless this has been one that the kids want reread again and again.

I got a but tongue tied the first couple times I read this book I'm not going to lie! Just like all of this authors stories, it's written like a poem, to a very nice rythem.
The structure of the story was great in the sense that it made my brain work a little to read it (how many toddler books do that!?!) And my 2.5 year old ADORES the story. She actually can now quote a lot of it (and all of The Gruffalo's Child (another of our alltime favorites, by this author).

I've probably read this book 50 times to her since purchase a few weeks ago and forsee many, many, more times for years to come. It will go in our permanent collection.

Lush lyrics and illustrations, enchanting story with some wonderful "lessons."
This has become one of my children's favorite books.
We've also donated one to our school library and it has become a favorite to give as a gift.
Really charming book.
We love this book! It is a fun little story with great meter and rhyme (which can be painful when not done right!). We also other books by the same author including Room on the Broom and the The Gruffalo.

This is a little snail with a desire to see the world and makes friends with a whale, and then in turn, saves the whale. It's delightful.
