The mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood and made Julia Donaldson a lot of lovely money as well as millions of fans worldwide. The Gruffalo illustrated book is down to £2.39 on Amazon and it comes with, you guessed it, free delivery.
The Gruffalo is a modern children’s classic that most children can now recite by rote (and so can their poor parents!). It has been made into a movie, has about a million different book incarnations and soft toys and gizmos and luxury items, and is an utterly delightful story to boot.
If you are a new parent who doesn’t know who the Gruffalo may be, then get this book immediately. Especially since it is down from the usual retail price of £6.99 and is now only £2.39 on Amazon. That is silly cheap!
Don’t be tempted to buy the sequel, though. It is nowhere near as good.
