Day 15 #adventchallenge

                                                 The Gruffalos child by Julia Donaldson

Who doesn't love the Gruffalo?? I know that my daughter is very fond of the story! Before I started the challenge, she mentioned to me that she had heard the story of the little Gruffalo in the snow whilst at preschool. I knew she meant "The Gruffalo's child" so I ordered it from Books For Bugs (www.booksforbugs.co.uk) especially for the advent book box.

The Gruffalo's child is intrigued when her father tells her the story of the Big Bad Mouse. Whilst he sleeps, she sets off on a journey to seek out the mouse, finding familiar characters from the original story along the way. Soon, she comes across the mouse and discovers just how scary he is!!

Again, another favourite of mine! It is a wonderful story, illustrated by the brilliant Axel Schieffer, who really brings the Gruffalo characters to life!! I just hope one day, I can be as well known and revered as Julia Donaldson!!
