The Snail and the Whale

A Savannah Kids Live Show adaptation of the wonderful story by Julia Donaldson


A humble sea snail with a big imagination slides around a smooth black rock on the dock of the harbour, longing to see the world...

He writes a message on his rock in a silvery snail trail: "Lift wanted around the world".


A whale sees the message and offers him a ride!


Together they go on an amazing journey, past icebergs and volcanoes, sharks and penguins, and the snail feels very small in the vastness of the world.


But one day the whale is beached on the bay! Can the tiny snail with his talent for leaving a trail save the day?
