We love hunting for the “hidden” Gruffalo in the illustrations and seem to be able to find them in all our Julia Donaldson & Axel Sheffler books EXCEPT room on the broom! Is it there?!

Is there in them all? I know there's gruffalo biscuits in Highway Rat and Gruffalo fish in Tiddler but don't know any others?? I've never seen one in Room on the Broom but now I'm wondering, hahaha

Did you not google?
“Actually in Room on The Broom is the Gruffalo's arm poking out from behind a rock on the page with "The dragon drew back and he started to shake"? Right behind where the dragon is holding the witch??”

His arm is poking out from behind the rock on the page starting 'The dragon drew back' I think. It says so online and I just checked DD's copy and it certainly looks like it!

@teacup we don’t have all the books but the ones we have / have borrowed from the library all have a Gruffalo somewhere:
Stick man
Charlie crook
Tabby McTat
Snail on the whale

And yes tiddler and highway rat

A Squash and a Squeeze does not have a Gruffalo as it was the first book.

I didn't notice one in The Ugly Five either.

Oh that's lovely! Feel stupid for not noticing in Stick Man and Tabby Mctat though. Wonder if he's in Superworm.

He's in the rubbish dump in superworm.

If anybody knows if there is one in the Ugly Five please let me know, driving us mad looking!
Also where is he in Charlie Cook? Think we found the others.......

Anybody know about sugarlump and the unicorn? We can’t find him

stargirl1701 Thu 14-Jun-18 12:40:10

Sugarlump is Lydia Monks so no Gruffalo.

HumanParaquat Thu 14-Jun-18 12:46:11

Stickman also shows up in Tabby Mc Tat.

We can't find him in The Ugly five either

In Charlie crook I think it’s the child’s drawing in the Goldilocks part... it’s not as clearly a Gruffalo as the others IMO though!

In Room on the Broom, on the page where dragon drew back and started to shake, it looks more like the Cars paw? Is it definitely that page anyone?

In Room on the Broom I couldn’t see the Gruffalo on that page.
