A modern classic

Observer

One of the best picture books ever written

Sun

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.
