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)

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 :

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for toddlers who love to push buttons 26 Jun 2014
By A. Down
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As the father of a 2 year old boy I now clock every visible button in a room within 5 seconds of walking into it. This is not becasue I wish to push them all (although a big red button would be irresistable) but because my son love, love LOVES buttons! Anything that he can press, he will, usually regardless of the associated effect of said button push.
Therefore this hardback book is one of his favourites. At this age he will press the buttons randomnly as I read the story but that doesn't take away from the enjoyment. The story has little icons placed throughout the pages that match the different sound effects and help to describe the story. As he gets older I'm sure he will enjoy pressing the buttons at the right time.
The in-built batteries are lasting well and the book is bound well, not suffering the spine separation that so many of his books have experienced.
In summary, a great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you liked part 1, you will love this too 3 Jun 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The sounds are I think identical to the first book, so in a way that was disappointing, but the story is so sweet and fun after the first book, that we still enjoy it.
Also my son recognises the sounds from the first book and does the same noises or actions (twit twoo for the owl etc).

5.0 out of 5 stars one or the other! 23 May 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this as my son loves "the gruffalo" sound book, as a single item it's great but I wouldn't recommend buying both as most of the sounds are exactly the same.
That said he still loves it, I just feel slightly conned!
