"The Gruffalo quickly became a favourite of both my 4yo and 7yo (and even my husband)! The story is fun & smart while the illustrations are great as well. There are some repetitive lines so the children can join in. My 4yo loves it so much, he requested I buy additional copies to give as a party favour for his birthday party." - Scholastic.
"One of the best picture books ever written" - The Sun.
