The Gruffalo Carousel Book: Win a lovely prize bringing the iconic story to life

This fabulous new edition of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's story features play pieces and pop-up scenes to help your children enjoy it in a whole new way.

The front cover of The Gruffalo Carousel Book

The Gruffalo has been a firm family favourite ever since it was released back in 1999 - Julia Donaldson's warm and funny story, alongside Axel Scheffler's superb illustrations, make it a timeless tale to enjoy.

Now, there's a whole new way to join in the story - The Gruffalo Carousel Book!

Alongside the original story, this special book includes three pop-up scenes and nine press-out play pieces to have fun with.

With holes to peek through and flaps to lift, there's so much to discover - children will love exploring Fox's underground house, Owl's treehouse and Snake's logpile (but watch out for the Gruffalo hiding in the trees!)

Don't worry about losing the play pieces, either, because The Gruffalo Carousel Book includes a special envelope to keep them safe, as well as a ribbon closure.

We have five copies of this special book to give away, so if you fancy getting your hands on one, simply answer the question below and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Tuesday, 2 February 2021. Good luck!
