The creators of The Gruffalo and The Child of the Gruffalo made a new film about a little snail who wants to travel to discover the big world. But being a snail with a wanderlust doesn't get you very far. One day, Snail finds a solution. He hitchhikes on the tail of a whale! Together they embark on a journey past icebergs and volcanoes, sharks and penguins. With beautiful images and few words, the makers tell a story about dreams and travel, about being small and big at the same time. Come and see and travel the oceans with us.
