Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This is a book I never tire of reading to my boys. I'm always happy to see them pull it off the shelf. The adventurous snail and the fun rhymes make my boys giggle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of Donaldson's best We all love this book - mom, dad and 2 girls (aged 3 and 5). The rhyming story of a snail who hitches a ride on the tail of a whale around the world. We haven't gotten sick of reading it yet after a few months and the illustrations are wonderful.
