Julia Donaldson Pack

Five glowing, atmospheric picture book favourites from a much-loved team. Written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated in luminous colours by Axel Scheffler, each of these vivid rhyming stories is a triumph of imagination. From the little mouse who outwits a hungry Gruffalo to the snail who explores the world on a whale’s tail, and from the kindly giant who gives all his clothes away to the lost baby monkey with an ingenious method of finding Mum, each story explores themes of friendship, teamwork and exploration. Bursting with addictive rhymes, clever twists and heroic characters, these are simply as good as it gets!
