Read by Imelda Staunton, The Gruffalo's Child is the number one bestselling, much-loved sequel to the worldwide phenomenon that is The Gruffalo. This audiobook edition also includes a song and a read along track.

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 disobeys her father's warnings and ventures out into the snow. After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn't really exist . . . does he?

Perfect for listening to at home, in the car, at bedtime – or any time at all!

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

The Gruffalo’s Child achieves the impossible - an even more endearing, witty and delightful book than its parent.
