The Gruffalo

One of Coby's favourite reads at bedtime is The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson. I think it gets an airing at least twice a week:

"He has terrible tusks and terrible claws, and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws"
"Where are you meeting him?"
"Here, by these rocks, and his favourite food is roasted fox"
"Roasted fox!! I'm off!" Fox said
"Goodbye little mouse" and away he sped
"Silly old fox! Doesn't he know, there's no such thing as a gruffalo?"

Julia's other books include The Gruffalo's Child, Room on the Broom, Charlie Cook's Favourite Book and A Squash And A Squeeze.
