The best-selling Gruffalo is back in a new, interactive format in this make-your-own book. Gruffalo fans will love the chance of creating their very own version of a favourite story as they recreate scenes in this magnetic edition. Lots of prompts will help children think about how the story could best be told and will keep them amused for hours. Wonderfully inventive.
