Five years after the publication of “The Gruffalo”, “ The Gruffalo’s Child “ was introduced to the world, starring in her very own adventure – and proved an instant hit. It was voted The Children’s Book of the Year at the British Book of the Year Awards in 2005.
"The Gruffalo's Child" by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler is the bestselling sequel to "The Gruffalo".
“The Gruffalo said that no gruffalo should
Ever set foot in the deep dark wood…”
But one wild and windy night the Gruffalo’s child ignores her father’s warning and tiptoes out into the snow. After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist… does he?
The story is about the Gruffalo's daughter who sets off into the woods in order to find the 'big bad mouse' which is the only thing her dad is afraid of. On the way she encounters other beasts of the forest including a snake, an owl, and a fox. After her unsuccessful search, she sits down and says she doesn't believe in the 'big bad mouse', when it finally appears, and realized it isn't big and bad as her dad described.
However, the mouse, as smart as it is, tricks the gruffalo by standing on a tree branch which enlarges the mouse's shadow and scaring the gruffalo back to its cave. Then the mouse approaches...
Notice that the gruffalo's child is always holding her toy, Stick Man:)Julia Donaldson has a book describing the adventures of the stick man.
