Review

Five years after the publication of multi award-winning The Gruffalo, author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler return with a much-awaited sequel.

The Gruffalo's Child has all the charm of the original: a witty, rhyming text, enchanting illustrations and a neat reversal of the original plot. Fans of the original will not be disappointed.
