The Snail and the Whale
The Snail and the Whale

by Julia Donaldson

One tiny snail longs to see the world and hitches a lift on the tail of a whale. Together they go on an amazing journey, past icebergs and volcanoes, sharks and penguins, and the little snail feels so small in the vastness of the world. But when disaster strikes and the whale is beached in a bay, it’s the tiny snail who saves the day.

 

I will not ever never eat a Tomato
I will not ever never eat a Tomato

By Lauren Child

Patient older brother Charlie cleverly tricks his younger sister, Lola - an extremely fussy eater - into eating all her least favourite foods. Carrots are ’orange twiglets from Jupiter’, mashed potato is ’cloud fluff’, and the tomato-like ’moon-squirters’ become her favourite food of all! This is the first picture book about the brilliant brother and sister duo, Charlie and Lola. A bold and brightly-coloured book illustrated in Lauren Child’s distinctive style, incorporating a varied typeface and a characteristic combination of collage techniques, it’s completely irresistible to Children and their parents. Great fun to share, this story may even persuade picky eaters to try something new.
