A shadow of a very large, scary creature falls on the ground.

External Reviews

"As with the original Gruffalo story this book works on so many levels, the language, the rhythm, the sequencing and even the visual representation of the technical detail of a forest, this time in Winter - no idealised and inaccurate 'townie' concept here! Most importantly children are drawn in to an evolving world of which they become a part."

"I love this author for children's books. The Gruffalo is always the first book I buy for a new baby and continue with other books by the same author. I feel it gives great simulation to the child and it is great for interaction. I have been buying these books for 8 years and will continue to do so for many more. It is well worth the money. I have never met a child who didn't love this book especially when You make up all the voices to go with it."
