5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly magical - a work of genius
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 6 August 2019
I am totally in awe of Julia Donaldson and her amazing talent. Just how does she do it? Time after time, she comes up with the sweetest stories and characters and then, as if that isn’t hard enough, she transforms them into fun, catchy rhymes. I can’t imagine any toddler not being totally captivated by every one of her books.

There is so much to love about The Snail and the Whale, it’s hard to know where to begin. The story, of course is magical. A tiny snail with ‘itchy feet’ hitches a ride on the tail of a ‘great big, grey-blue humpback whale’ and sets off on a fabulous adventure around the world. When disaster strikes, it’s the little snail, despite her size and feelings of inferiority, who uses her ingenuity to save the day and get them both safely home. What a lovely lesson to teach young children!

The sweeping, rhyming narrative is a work of genius: lilting, evocative and an absolute joy to read aloud. It has everything: alliteration, onomatopoeia and an exquisite collection of adjectives to spark little imaginations and boost vocabulary. As always, Donaldson’s narrative is showcased to perfection by Alex Scheffler’s stunning illustrations, which offer lots to talk about and explore. You can see a few of my favourite pages in the photos above.

The book itself is a high-quality hardback with thick board pages to withstand the envisaged heavy use. I honesty cannnot recommend highly enough this and all other Donaldson/Scheffler collaborations.

Thanks for reading my review. I hope you found it helpful. Check out my profile page for more reviews of toddler books and puzzles and educational toys and games.
