The Snail And The Whale is a children's picture book written by former children's laureate Julia Donaldson and illustrated by longtime collaborator Axel Scheffler. The Snail and the Whale has also been adapted into an audiobook , a successful stage play and translated into British Sign Language. Donaldson has said that it is one of her favourite books, due to its similarity in rhyming style to the works of Edward Lear , of which she was particularly fond as a child. A little snail lives in a flock, on a rock by the docks, and longs to see the wider world. After she writes an advert for a " lift wanted around the world ", a humpback whale arrives one clear night and offers to take her travelling. The pair see many sights along their way until one day, the humpback whale, confused by the noise of a group of racing speedboats , swims into a bay and is left beached by the slowly retreating tide.
