The Gruffalo

The nation’s favourite monster. As epic as Bigfoot. From his terrible tusks to his terrible claws, we love every inch of him. He launched Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler to instant fame. His book was voted Britain’s favourite bedtime story. He has the shaggiest legs, the wartiest nose and the funniest rhymes anywhere. The little mouse walking in the forest doesn’t believe in the Gruffalo. But for the sake of little readers all over the world, thank goodness he really exists!
