Julia writes songs as well as stories. You can find a lot of her songs in this beautifully illustrated book, A Treasury of Songs. It comes with a CD on which Julia sings the songs with some great musicians.

Julia’s husband Malcolm plays the guitar and likes singing too. Below you can watch them both performing songs from some of your favourite stories. Maybe you’d like to sing along. Click on an image to choose a song and don’t forget to turn up the sound!

You might notice some songs in Makaton. The Makaton Charity have been delighted to work with Julia on The Gruffalo and Monkey Puzzle songs and have also developed some guides to using Makaton signs and symbols when reading the books. Learn more at:
