More About the Author

Julia Donaldson, the 2011-2013 Children's Laureate, is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of the world's most-loved picture books including The Gruffalo and What the Ladybird Heard.

The Gruffalo, illustrated by Axel Scheffler, is now a children's classic and publishing phenomenon; celebrating 15 years in 2014, selling over 3 million copies worldwide, was voted Great Britain's favourite bedtime story on BBC Radio 2 and was adapted and broadcast as an animation on BBC 1 on Christmas Day 2009. The Gruffalo's Child and Room on the Broom are now also films, with Room on the Broom shortlisted for an Academy Award in 2014. Julia Donaldson's most recent books with Axel Scheffler include Superworm (2012), Highway Rat (2011), Tabby McTat (2010), Stick Man (2009) and Tiddler (2008).

Julia Donaldson has also published work with David Roberts, Nick Sharratt, Emily Gravett, Rebecca Cobb, and Lydia Monks. Her collaboration with Lydia Monks began in 2003, with the first collection of Princess Mirror-Belle stories. The fabulously glittery Sugarlump and the Unicorn is their sixth, and most recent, picture book collaboration. She also writes poems, plays, songs and fiction for older children and, together with her husband Malcolm, has performed her wonderful stage shows all over the world.

Product Description


Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's creation is further brought to life by the many sounds of the deep, dark wood. Toddlers will love spotting the pictures that tell you which buttons to press and it helps hold their attention right until the end of the story. (Made for Mums)

4.0 out of 5 stars Tje Graffalo's Child Sound Book 15 April 2014
It arrived on time, batteries full, undamaged and all was as advertised. If I'm required to give up my time to answer these questions every time I order something I might stop ordering though, as I'm too busy to be hassled like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's the Gruffalo, what else do you need to say? 13 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This gruffalo book is awesome no doubt. You can read and add the sounds where appropriate and just for fun, the rhyme is excellent as well. SInce we are raising a bilingual child and there is no such book in Russian (with sounds), I just printed russian text on self-stickign transparent film and added russian lines under each english line, so now we have it in two languages with those sounds :

But this is not the best Julia Donaldson book. Son loves the sounds but the story is somewhat lacking. But then we have been spoilt by gruff also, room on the broom and zog!
