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 ignores her father’s warning and tiptoes out into the snow. After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist – does he?
The Gruffalo’s Child is the sequel and great follow up to the much-loved story The Gruffalo. The Gruffalo tells his daughter of the big bad mouse, and whilst the Gruffalo is sleeping she sneaks out of the cave to find him. The story has the original characters, the fox, owl, snake and of course the mouse. Once again the mouse comes out on top with his fast thinking and trickery.
The story is original and young children can find the Gruffalo’s daughter very relatable. It is easy to read and children can follow the rhyming patterns.
