The Gruffalo's Child

Five years after the publication of multi award-winning The Gruffalo, author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler return with a much-awaited sequel.


The Gruffalo's Child
has all the charm of the original: a witty, rhyming text, enchanting illustrations and a neat reversal of the original plot. Fans of the original will not be disappointed.

'Read this to my baby girl in our rocking chair...'

Read this to my baby girl in our reading rocking chair in her nursery, three weeks old. Great book that brings back the familiar original nicely.

I read this story to my son when he was 2 weeks old. A fantastic story which we will re-read time and again.
