The Snail and the Whale © Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler 2003 – Macmillan Children’s Books.

Join an adventurous young girl and her seafaring father as they reimagine the story of a tiny snail’s incredible trip around the world, inspired by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s much-loved picture book.

Longing to see the world, a tiny sea snail hitches a lift on the tail of a great big, grey-blue humpback whale. Together they go on an amazing journey, brought vividly to life through live music, storytelling and lots of laughs – but when the whale gets beached, how will the snail save him?

A heart-warming adventure for everyone aged four and up, from Tall Stories, the Olivier Award-nominated company that brought you ‘The Gruffalo’ and ‘Room on the Broom’ live on stage.

“Captivating, inventive storytelling along with beautiful live music and songs – it’s highly recommended that you climb aboard and set sail!”

“It’s ingenious, nattily staged, and like the little snail at the heart of the story has big ambitions and wide horizons. Very nice.”
