Longing to see the world, a tiny sea snail hitches a lift on the tail of a great, grey-blue humpback whale. Together they go on an amazing journey, told through live cello music and singing, storytelling and lots of laughs … but when the whale gets beached, how will the snail save him? Join an adventurous young girl and her seafaring father as they re-imagine the story of the tiny snail’s incredible trip around the world.
