Who needs a cruise ship? See our beautiful world and its wonders from a whale’s tail. If you’re a little explorer at heart, this lovely book will be very special to you. It’s like an adventure travel brochure in the form of a Julia Donaldson rhyming story. Travel from icebergs (hello, penguins!) to volcanoes. And from coral reefs (hello, sharks!) to deep dark caves. Marvel at our precious planet – and find out how a tiny snail saves the day.
