The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. Text © to Julia Donaldson, illustrations © to Axel Scheffler. Used by permission of Macmillan Publishers Limited.
The sea snail slithered all over the rock
And gazed at the sea and the ships in the dock.
And as she gazed she sniffed and sighed.
"The sea is deep and the world is wide
How I long to sail!"
said the tiny snail.
