THE GRUFFALO written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Alex Scheffler

This one of the most popular picture books ever! It is the story of a little mouse who outwits forest animals - fox, owl and snake from eating him with the fear of the frightening 'Gruffalo'.

We not only have the book in the library, but also the DVD and audio CD of this wonderful story.

Watch the following clip of the movie and the making of the movie which includes an interview with the talented Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffler.

Other books by this author/illustrator are - 'Room on the Broom', 'The Gruffalo's Child', 'Stick Man', 'Tabby McCat', 'The Snail and the Whale', 'Tiddler','Monkey Puzzle', 'A Squash and a Squeeze', 'The Smartest Giant in Town', 'Zog' and many more. Look for them in our library now!

I love this movie - it's one of my favourites! I love the way that the music takes on it's own character.
