My daughter and I both love this story as much as each other! It's a current favourite in our house. I would of preffered a hardback as after so much reading and handling from a toddler it's getting a bit worse for wear being paperback. We are collecting all the books by the same author as they have been half price in store.

This is a fab book! If you have seen the animated version (shown over Christmas) then get this to read with your little one. My daughter and I love looking at the pictures, which are often 2 page spreads, or a mixture of little and big pictures, and we discuss the various parts of the Gruffalo and what the other animals are frightened of. It's a classic book to buy, and although it says from 3+ I've been reading it to my daughter since she was 15 months old, and she loves it!

I love this book, almost as much as my little girl. Its a great read and we never tire of it. The rhyming scheme makes it easy for her to remember and she now says the last word of almost every line. At age 2! All the other books in this series are great too.

This is one of my sons favourite stories. We read is at least once a week together. Fabulous imagery, lovely pictures, and just the right amount of scariness for a toddler to enjoy!

one of the best childrens' books I have ever read! My daughter is 18 months and although she doesn't follow the story properly yet, she loves the pictures. It's one of our favourites to read before lily goes to bed as it amuses me as much as her! I'm sure it will continue to be for a very long time, same with the other books by this author.
