    1. This is another great book of the series my children absolutely loved. There is the little gruffalo this time who discovers how scary the little mouse is. Her father warned her about the Big Bad Mouse, but she still went to the forest to see how the mouse looks like. Obviously the mouse was neither big, nor bad. But still the mouse made the Gruffalo's child think that he is dangerous. Clever Little Mouse! Thus, the Gruffalo's child runs back to her parent for reassurance and a big hug.A book whi [...]

    3. The Gruffalo's Child is the sequal to the much loved story The Gruffalo. The Gruffalo tells his daughter of the big bad mouse, and whilst the Gruffalo is sleeping she sneaks out of the cave to find him. The story has the orginal characters, the fox, owl, snake and of course the mouse. Once again the mouse comes out on top with his fast thinking and trickery. I actually prefer this story to the original as I feel that young children can realate to the Gruffalo's daughter. I read The Gruffalo to t [...]

    4. I like this one even more than the original :-)But why?The illustration and the rhymes are equally good between the two.The Gruffalo's Child is self-depreciating - the other animals are teasing the child and at the end the Mouse plays a trick on her, so she runs home to have a cuddle with her Dad. This feels a bit more like realityThe original Gruffalo is great, but it is also a bit smug. The Mouse easily pulls the wool over all the other animals' eyes, and then does the same to the Gruffalo too [...]

    5. This is a great follow up to the book The Gruffalo. The Gruffalo's Child follows the adventure of the Gruffalo's daughter as she goes in search for the Big Bad Mouse. I read this book during story time to year 1 children and they enjoyed the continuity of the characters and joined in with the repeated sentences - even those who were not previously familiar with the story. They also enjoyed getting into character for each creature. This is a great story for children as they follow the Gruffalo's [...]

    6. I read the Gruffalo's Child to a family member's daughter at bed time and she loves the book so much that she would be saying the story while I was reading it and want to flip back to her favourite part. It is a cautionary tale about the Gruffalo's Child who gets bored one night and wants to go and find the 'big scary mouse'. he does not believe his father's story that the mouse is the most fearsome creature in the woods (which he is not) and ends up meeting different animals along the way. The [...]

    7. Another great book from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. If you haven't read The Gruffalo, it's probably best to do that first. Although the story stands on its own, it's more meaningful if you know what the mouse got up to in the first one.The Gruffalo tells his child not to go into the woods because he might run into the Big Bad Mouse. However, the Gruffalo's child is bored and sneaks out while Dad is sleeping. Along the way, he meets different animals who point him in the right direction. [...]

    8. „Детето на Грузулака“ пък с твърдите си корици е прекрасен подарък. Това е книга, която с поетичната си стъпка ме спечели завинаги, и определено ще потърся първата книга за Грузулака и малкото мишле. И в една снежна нощ последвах детето на Грузулака, което бе решило, че не м [...]

    9. The Gruffalo’s Child was a great follow up from the gruffalo. The Gruffalo’s Child, as it suggests, follows the adventure of the Gruffalo’s daughter as she goes in search of the Big Bad Mouse. The child goes on a trail with the mouse to find the Big Bad Mouse, and, just like her father, the Gruffalo’s child has the wool pulled over her eyes by the small creature. Featuring the same woodland animals as in the original book, children enjoy the continuity of the characters.The chidren from [...]

    10. Follow up to 'The Gruffalo' the story is about the gruffalo's child who sets off to find the mouse his father is afraid of. After meeting various animals who point the way to the mouse the gruffalo's child meets the mouse. Realising the mouse is not as big the gruffalo, the gruffalo is not scared of the mouse, so the mouse is left to come up with a cunning plan. Needless to say the mouse is very clever and the gruffalo is soon running home to its father. This is a light hearted story with excell [...]

    11. I cannot believe that I only read this book for the first time a couple of days ago. Having loved reading "The Gruffalo", this was a brilliant and clever sequel. The book follows the same description sequence that The Gruffalo does, but for the mouse, highlighting his "wiry whiskers" and his "scaly tail". A very entertaining read!

    22. I read this to my year 3 class at the end of the day and even at this age children are still enjoying the use of rhyme in the story. The children enjoyed joining in with the repeated sentences - even those who were not previously familiar with the story.This story is a follow up from Julia Donaldson's previous book - The Gruffalo.

    23. This book is a sequel to The Gruffalo and most people say the second part can never be better then the first, but I believe this book was just as good. The Gruffalo Child is a simple trickster story filled with lovely pictures and ryhme and it grabs the readers attention throughout. I also liked the fact that all the characters remainded the same from the first part so children who read the The gruffalo was able to link it easily.This book allows children to learn about descriptive words, verbs [...]

    24. This picture book is beautifully illustrated from cover to cover with detailed images.It's about how a Gruffalo's child is curious to find out about the mouse that his dad talk's about and goes out on a little adventure. It rhymes throughout and reminded me of another children's story very similarly done, with repetitive lines that children after two pages can start to follow along with their teacher (if being read to them) or it makes it easier for them to read it faster because it is repetitiv [...]

    25. I read this during my alternative placement at a nursery and this was the children's favourite. The children were aged two to four and at least one child everyday, would find this out of their large book collection and ask me to read it. Children like the rhyme and repition of the story as it allows them to join in. The children that were listening closely, liked to listen to the description and guess what the Gruffalo's child had seen. I think that it can be hard to find a book at a suitable le [...]

    26. The first "Gruffalo" is an absolute classic, but this sequel is equally delightful, putting an interesting twist on the original tale of a clever wee mouse who outsmarts the forest animals who want to eat it, then outsmarts the terrifying Gruffalo. Here it is the Gruffalo's own child who has heard tales of the fearsome mouse, and who goes out to find this terrifying creature when bored one night. Once again the rhymes are lovely, full of rhythm and fresh twists that delight little readers listen [...]
