"Wonderful extension of 'the gruffalo'…"
We read this before 'the gruffalo' which was nice as the two really aren't related apart from the gruffalo's appearance.
I felt for the gruffalo's child and was griped to see what was going to happen next, really hoping it would end well.
My DS has made me read this almost daily, which speaks columns as he has loads of books to choose.Read moreLess

"Not as good as the original Gruffalo book I'm afraid.…"
Not as good as the original Gruffalo book I'm afraid. This hasn't held the attention of our ds half as much as the original did.

"A wonderful sequel to my children's all time top book. All fans of the Gruffalo will probably enjoy this book just as much, though I'm not entirely sure it's as easy for a pre-schooler to follow as the original." "Fantastic illustrations and plenty of rhyme and repetition to get them engaged." "A great bedtime read - we've had it less than a week and it's already a favourite."Read moreLess

"This is the best of the Julia Donaldson and Axel…"
This is the best of the Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheiffer books. A perfect bedtime read - it's an easy one to read aloud, great for putting on different voices - my 2.5 year old knows the story backwards, and loves nothing more than having it read as her bedtime story. A definite 9.5 out of 10!Read moreLess
"10/10 One of my daughters best books, which we read at…"
One of my daughters best books, which we read at least twice a week, the perfect bed time story with great pictures and easy to follow story line. Evry child should have the Gruffalo books.Read moreLess
