Adorable sequel to the Gruffalo.

Adorable sequel to the Gruffalo. My two month old loves all of Julia Donaldson's books and I have so much fun reading them to her! It's longer than you'd think would hold a baby's attention, but with wide eyes she giggles and kicks her feet with excitement. The story flows very well and the drawings are beautiful.

The Gruffalo was sent to Reid Books in 1995. 2005 British Book Awards: The Gruffalo's Child. 2007 Giverny Award: The Snail and the Whale. 2009 NASEN Book Awards: Running on the Cracks. Donaldson sent the text to Axel Scheffler, whom she had met only once or twice, briefly, following the publication of A Squash and a Squeeze. Within days Macmillan Children's Books made an offer to publish The Gruffalo, which was illustrated by Scheffler and published in 1999. The Gruffalo was an immediate success, going on to win several awards, including the Smarties Prize (1999).

Thus, the Gruffalo's child runs back to her parent for reassurance and a big hug. A book which will be read . Another great book from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. If you haven't read The Gruffalo, it's probably best to do that first. A book which will be read again and again like the first on. . Although the story stands on its own, it's more meaningful if you know what the mouse got up to in the first one.

I ordered these for my son after he fell in love with them after stumbling upon the Netflix cartoon. I saw other reviews that there is an Americanized version of the story. This version is British (stamped on the back with a price in pounds) and follows the dialogue of the cartoon very closely. There is a lot of text on each page so for my 20m old, it is a bit of a stretch to hold his attention. For older children, especially those familiar with the cartoon, it should be even better as their attention span is longer. Since my guy is still young and not very gentle with books, thus I was very happy to find these available as the board book version. The books are very well constructed. They have only been here a short time, but seem as though they will be very durable. Their case is adorable with cutouts on each side to showcase a picture from the book cover.

These are the original British language books, to my knowledge. The dialogue matches to the videos, and both our children are delighted with them: the toddler who acts them out, and the baby who looks at the pictures and chews on the corners. For those people unfamiliar with the stories, they are delightful rhyming tales that I would call must-haves for a growing child's bookshelf. I urge you to get right into the fun by reading them aloud with character voices, using your best British accents.

My grandsons adore these stories on video. I wanted to get them the books to enjoy, when I'm not visiting. They love them. The books are well made, pages that children can turn, and not tear. The books are large with nice illustrations, so both boy's can see, when reading. These books fit the story, an award winner, they should last a long time, perhaps the next generation of boys.

As other reviewers noted, these books are BEAUTIFUL. The case and book covers are linen, with metallic embossing. We have seen the film version on Netflix, and the story is just about identical (without the squirrel narrator). The illustrations in side the books also matched the the films.
I needed to email the supplier regarding delivery of this item, as it was no longer showing as a pending order but I had not yet received it. Also, it showed a delivery date of a few weeks out, which I believe also got longer after I ordered. This was confusing, but they were very helpful. My order history still shows this as pending delivery on 2/1. I ordered my book on 12/20, and received it earlier than expected, on approx. 1/6.

This is the original British version, not the Americanized one! Great production quality. No paper slipcovers on the 2 hardbacks inside the case.
My 2 year old loves them and probably will for years to come.

We love these books. The story is so clever we had to have a copy for our boy. It's about a monster that a little mouse dreams up to scare away predators. At the end he meets his made up monster and has a clever way of convincing it not to eat him. This book is about a brave and super smart little mouse. I bought another set as a gift because we loved it so much.

Love this series and the son watched the Netflix show first and loved it. I was excited to see that the books existed. And the show follows perfectly, word for word.
Excellent quality. Nice solid hard cover books with beautiful foil inlays on both the book covers and the slip case. My 3 year old loves these stories.
