Read full description of the books The Snail House:
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.
Read information about the authorAllan Ahlberg, one of the most acclaimed and successful authors of children's books - including the best-selling Jolly Postman series - says that he dreamed of becoming a writer since the age of twelve. But his route to that goal was somewhat circuitous.
Other jobs along the way included postman (not an especially jolly one, he recalls), gravedigger, plumber, and teacher.
The author wrote his first book when he was thirty-seven, after a decade of teaching - a profession that he maintains is "much harder" than being a writer.
Allan Ahlberg says that if he hadn't become a writer, he would have loved to be a soccer player. He lives in England with his family.
