Unlikely alliances and unexpected adventures await the protagonists in these short films.

The characters in this collection of shorts make sure to include others in their efforts and adventures. In one short, a giraffe and his family are spending holidays in an unexpected place, to the annoyance of one resident. Must they fit in? In another short, when a tiny snail meets a humpback whale, the two travel together to far-off lands. It's a dream come true for the snail, who has never left home before. But when the whale swims too close to shore, will the snail be able to save her new friend? Based on the beloved book by Julia Donaldson and narrated by Diana Rigg.
