A special book and CD edition of the bestselling The Gruffalo's Child. The Gruffalo said that no gruffalo should Ever set foot in the deep dark wood. But one wild and windy night the Gruffalo's child disobeys her father's warnings and ventures out into the snow. After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn't really exist ...does he? The Gruffalo's Child is the Number One bestselling, much-loved sequel to the worldwide picture-book phenomenon that is The Gruffalo. Julia Donaldson's trademark rhyming text and Axel Scheffler's brilliant, characterful illustrations combine once more to ensure that the Gruffalo's child has followed firmly in her father's footsteps and that her story is one that children will ask for again, and again...and again! The Gruffalo' Child Book and CD Pack features the classic story with a stunning redesigned cover and finish, and a story CD read aloud by actress Imelda Staunton, making it a must-have addition to the bookshelves of all Donaldson and Scheffler fans - big and small! Other available book and CD packs with redesigned covers are The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom, The Snail and the Whale, The Smartest Giant in Town, Monkey Puzzle, Charlie Cook's Favourite Book, and A Squash and a Squeeze.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

Awards Winner of National Book Awards Children's Book of the Year Award 2005 (UK)
NZ Review The Gruffalo's Child achieves the impossible - an even more endearing, witty and delightful book than its parent. * The Bookseller * A variation on the relationship between the canny mouse and the gentle but huge and ugly Gruffalo, so deliciously played out in The Gruffalo, is wittily recreated in this welcome encore. * The Guardian *
