The Gruffalo's Child Book and CD Pack Synopsis

A special book and CD edition of the bestselling The Gruffalo's Child. The Gruffalo said that no gruffalo should Ever set foot in the deep dark wood. But one wild and windy night the Gruffalo's child disobeys her father's warnings and ventures out into the snow. After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn't really exist . . . does he? The Gruffalo's Child is the Number One bestselling, much-loved sequel to the worldwide picture-book phenomenon that is The Gruffalo.

The Gruffalo's Child Book and CD Pack Press Reviews

The Gruffalo's Child achieves the impossible - an even more endearing, witty and delightful book than its parent. * The Bookseller * A variation on the relationship between the canny mouse and the gentle but huge and ugly Gruffalo, so deliciously played out in The Gruffalo, is wittily recreated in this welcome encore. * The Guardian *
