Allan Ahlberg's fanciful tale, paired with beautifully detailed artwork by Gillian Tyler, invites children to see the world from a different perspective. Here is the story Grandma tells one evening on her wide veranda steps. It has Michael and Hannah and the disappearing baby in it, a tigerish bird, raindrops like sacks of water, and the hugest apple you ever saw. Oh yes . . . and the Snail House. So gather round, climb up now into Grandma's lap. Darkness is falling, the air is still, and the story is just about to begin. With rhythmic text and intricate illustrations, renowned author Allan Ahlberg and illustrator Gillian Tyler have crafted a magical tale about the joys of seeing the world up close--and of sharing stories.
