About the Author:

JULIA DONALDSON, recently appointed as the Children's Laureate, is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of the world's most-loved children's books, most notably the modern classicThe Gruffalo, which has sold over 5 million copies worldwide. She has also written the young fiction series Princess Mirror-Belle, illustrated by Lydia Monks.

Julia also writes fiction as well as poems, plays and songs - and her brilliant live shows are always in demand. She lives in Glasgow with her husband, Malcolm, and their family.

AXEL SCHEFFLER is a star illustrator in the world of children's books, and has created many bestsellers including the award-winningThe Gruffaloand its irresistible sequelThe Gruffalo's Child. Born in Hamburg, Axel now lives in London where he works in a studio overlooking a quiet garden populated by birds and foxes.

From Publishers Weekly:

The eponymous character introduced by this British team owes a large debt to Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are. When Mouse meets Fox in the "deep dark wood," he invents a story about the gruffalo, described very much like Sendak's fearsome quartet of wild thingsA"He has terrible tusks, and terrible claws, and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws." The gullible fox runs away when Mouse tells him that the gruffalo's favorite food is roasted fox. "Silly old Fox!" says Mouse, "Doesn't he know?/ There's no such thing as a gruffalo!" Owl and Snake follow suit until, with a turn of the page, Mouse runs into the creature he has imagined. Quick-thinking Mouse then tells the monster, "I'm the scariest creature in this deep dark wood./ Just walk behind me and soon you'll see,/ Everyone for miles is afraid of me." Fox, Owl and Snake appear to be terrified of the tiny mouse, but readers can plainly see the real object of their fears. By story's end, the gruffalo flees, and Mouse enjoys his nut lunch in peace. Despite the derivative plot line, debut author Donaldson manipulates the repetitive language and rhymes to good advantage, supplying her story with plenty of scary-but-not-too-scary moments. Scheffler's gruffalo may seem a goofy hybrid of Max's wild things, but his cartoonlike illustrations build suspense via spot-art previews of the monster's orange eyes, black tongue and purple prickles until the monster's appearance in full. Ages 4-8.
