The Snail and the Whale, what a great tale!
We have a 3 year old and she loves books. A friend bought us a few other books by publisher "Dial Books for Young Readers" and we really enjoy them. They are great stories that keep kids interested and parents enjoy reading them. So when searching for some other books this book came up in a search and we bought it. We are so happy we did because our daughter loves the book, a great story about a snail who goes on an adventure accross the sea on whale. Great artwork and really fun.

The Snail And the Whale
This is a fun tale of adventure. It was great to see the power that each of the characters had. It didn't matter if you were large or small, they each had something to contribute. The illustrations were attractive and the story had a nice rhythm to it.
