Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

Awards Winner of National Book Awards Children's Book of the Year Award 2005 (UK)
NZ Review The Gruffalo's Child achieves the impossible - an even more endearing, witty and delightful book than its parent. * The Bookseller * A variation on the relationship between the canny mouse and the gentle but huge and ugly Gruffalo, so deliciously played out in The Gruffalo, is wittily recreated in this welcome encore. * The Guardian *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 5 stars (out of 5)
