The Gruffalo's Child 10th Anniversary Edition by Julia Donaldson
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Former Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson followed up her best-selling The Gruffalo with a story about The Gruffalo’s Child. This special anniversary edition celebrates its 10th year of entertaining the very young with how the little mouse outwits the Gruffalo’s Child with a plan that is just as cunning as the original one he hatched to frighten away the Gruffalo. Axel Scheffler’s illustrations once again capture the humour of the text and the fear that lurks behind the joke.
