The Lovereading4Kids comment

Weary parents everywhere will be delighted with this Sound Book version of the best selling favourite, The Gruffalo. Now, they can read the story and share Axel Scheffler’s wonderful illustrations but are let off adding their own sounds effects. Instead, they’ll soon find their children follow the icons and press the sound buttons accordingly to create the sounds of the mouse, the fox, the snake and, of course, the gruffalo himself, in this wonderfully vibrant version of this modern classic.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
