For the last couple of year they’ve played my two favourite short story films that I have hardly missed; it’s sort of come a part of my daily Christmas thing where each it gets put on tv, I first heard when I use to work at a school and it then became one of my favourite story ever. I know it’s a kid story but I don’t remember reading it as a child but then again I couldn’t hear at the time.
The story is called “The Gruffalo” and “The Gruffalo Child” created By Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler the most successful author/illustrator partnership in the picture book publishing. I have put along side this a snippet of what the author is about but to find out more please click on the link below.
“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.” http://www.gruffalo.com/world-of/the-story
