The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
‘Silly old fox, doesn’t he know? There’s no such thing as a Gruffalo!’ Isn’t there? So who is this terrible beast with terrible claws, and terrible tusks in its terrible jaws, and knobbly knees and turned-out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of its nose? Find out when the brave little mouse takes a walk through the deep dark woods in this classic children’s tale, performed with gusto by Julia Donaldson and a plucky group of children.
