The Gruffalo (Board Book)

What a classic. The nation’s favourite monster. From his terrible tusks to his terrible claws, we love every inch of him. Who is the Gruffalo? Well… he launched Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler to instant fame. His book was voted Britain’s favourite bedtime story. He has the shaggiest fur, the wartiest nose and the funniest rhymes anywhere. And now his classic rhyme is looking even more adorable than ever, in a sturdy board edition for little paws like yours.
