20 Things We Learned from The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child
Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's The Gruffalo is celebrating a monster birthday this year on the 23rd March! The book was first published 20 years ago after being brought to life by Julia's avid imagination and Axel's iconic illustrations. Then, in 2004, the story was continued with The Gruffalo's Child which saw fiction's favourite monster warn his daughter about the terrifying "Big Bad Mouse" from the deep dark wood. To celebrate 20 years since The Gruffalo was published, we've put together a list of 20 lessons The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child have taught us about life, morals, children's stories and ourselves.
