‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Sebastian Loth
Age Range: Under_5
Clementine the snail loves everything round—hoops, wheels, balls, balloons and most of all, the moon. She longs to glide gently over the moon’s surface so she makes a daring decision— "I'm going to fly to the moon," she whispered into the night . . ." Her best friend Paul helps her to find an ingenious way to travel to the moon and soon Clementine is setting out on the most amazing journey.
Clementine is a determined little snail with a dream and this gentle story by French author and illustrator Sebastian Loth is about exploring something new and following those dreams, but also about learning to appreciate the simple things in life.
The expressive illustrations of the intrepid Clementine are delightful and are sure to engage young readers. At the end of the book there are some useful facts about the earth. A perfect book to share and read aloud.
