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.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

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

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.
