    The Gruffalo has become one of the most-loved children's characters of all time and this 10-CD collection brings him, and many of his equally brilliant friends from Julia Donaldson's collection of books, to life in audio format.

    What the Ladybird Heard, Charlie Cook's Favourite Book, The Troll, The Snail and the Whale, Room on the Broom, The Smartest Giant, A Squash and a Squeeze, The Gruffalo's Song, The Gruffalo's Child and The Gruffalo.
