About the event

Meet the Gruffalo – from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s popular children’s book. Walkabouts at 12.30pm-1pm & 2pm-2.30pm.

The Gruffalo is one of the world’s best-loved monsters. Since it was first published in 1999, the award-winning story of his encounter with the little brown mouse in the deep dark wood has continued to delight children and adults the world over.

Created by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, the most successful author/illustrator partnership in picture book publishing, The Gruffalo is a modern classic, and both mouse and monster have become stars of stage and screen as well as story-time favourites.
