Have you read and enjoyed "The Gruffalo"? Try this book for the same easy reading, rhyming style. After reading "The Gruffalo", of course, we HAD to buy this, and for a while, it was compulsory bed time reading. What did |I find? A totally endearing book, in which the gruffalo's child continues...

On a recent trip to our local library we picked up this book, on reading another review i found that this book was actually a sequel to The Gruffalo but that didn't matter one bit when we came to read it as it is a story on it's own. The book is written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel...

The Gruffalo's Child' is another delightful children's picture book by the fantastic team of Julia Donaldsona and Axel Scheffler. Although it can be read as a stand alone story, I think your child will get more enjoyment out of it if they have read 'The Gruffalo' first. If you don't know the...

I was surprised to see the Gruffalo had managed to produce a child, I always thought of it as being asexual and never quite knew whether it was a male or female but there you go but on reading this book I know it's a 'he' Gruffalo as the child calls him Dad. Glad I got that one sorted out in my...

Doesn't flow as nicely as The Gruffalo

Author: Julia Donaldson Illustrator: Axel Scheffler Price: £3.99 on Amazon (paperback 15/3/2007) For me The Gruffalo (the previous book in this series) is a great little book. The poetry appeals to all ages and has great humour. You can pick it up and instantly fall into the pattern of the rhyme...

The gruffalo's child was feeling bored.... is she brave enough to go on a hunt for the big bad mouse? Another classic story by Julia Donaldson, this quirky tale leads on from 'The Gruffalo' where we see the little mouse outsmart the knobbly-kneed, yellow-eyed wood-dweller. Will the mouse be made...

My son is a huge fan of the Gruffalo so when I saw a copy of The Gruffalo's Child I knew I had to buy it. It is another great book from Julia Donaldson, the simple rhyming verses brilliant for young children to follow. My son has memorised pretty much all of this story too, he especially loves...

great for children, 60% off, well illustrated

My god - daughter and I were eagerly awaiting this book - the sequel to the quite brilliant Gruffalo. Basically ' the Gruffalo ' has been our favourite bedtime story for years and our copy is now decidedly dog - earred !! But I must admit that I am a little disappointed with The Gruffalo's Child...
