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!)
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.
My Grandchildren love having this book read to them! So glad I purchased it.
