Sea Life has teamed up with Macmillan Children’s Books to bring Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s The Snail and the Whale to their centres.

A special The Snail and the Whale event will be hosted from February 18-26 at Sea Life Great Yarmouth.

Visitors can experience this children’s book written by former Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, like never before as they follow the story around the centre through an amazing underwater world.

The Snail and the Whale tells the story of a tiny snail who longs to see the world and hitches a lift on the tail of a whale. Together they go on an amazing journey, passed 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, the tiny snail saves the day.
