The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson, despite being a children's book, is a much-loved book by children and adults alike. :)
It's beautifully illustrated by Axel Scheffler and tells the captivating story of a mouse that takes a walk through a deep and dark wood.
The book has won several prizes and has sold over 11 million copies - it's even been made into a play on the West End!
The book is written for readers between the ages of three to seven.
Booka bookshop in Oswestry are having the Gruffalo pay a visit on Saturday, January 30th and Sunday, January 31st 2010; so if you enjoy the Gruffalo story, you can book in for a lovely Story-telling time and get to meet the Gruffalo for real!
Booka are already taking bookings for the children's storytelling, so to be sure of your place, please book as early as possible.
You can call Booka to reserve your place on 01691-662244.
Unless, of course, you don't believe there is such a thing as a Gruffalo!
Silly old fox/owl/snake, doesn't he know?
there's no such thing as a gruffalo!
