Editor's Notes

Fast becoming a children’s classic, the Gruffalo’s grizzly appearance has been an instant hit with little readers. Written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, the book has been translated into numerous languages and won notable literary prizes.

The story follows a mouse as he ventures into the woods and encounters various animals who rather plate him up as a meal than befriend him. In an attempt to escape being eaten, the mouse invents a monster with frightening features that he soon comes face to face with.

Based on a traditional Chinese story, Donaldson saw the potential to adapt the tale and created the Gruffalo as an educational picture book. Highly enjoyable to read out loud, the Gruffalo has become children’s favourite scary, but lovable character.

Q & As

Gruffalo Dressing-Up Costume 4.7 5 65 65
GREAT OUTFIT At first I thought this outfit was a bit expensive but when I received it, I was happily surprised. It is good quality, great details, and not least loved by my 3 year old son. However, note that it is on the small side - my boy can fit it now but probably not in a few months time! And he is not that big of a 3 year old!! 08 April 2014
Great quality We bought this for my daughter who is 2.5 as a Christmas present. It is too big for her at the moment but her cousin who is bigger than her had great fun in it pretending to be the gruffalo. My husband saw another outfit elsewhere and said that the quality of it didn't compare, this was far better. 29 December 2013
Fabulous!!! Bought as a Christmas gift for my 4 year old granddaughter who loves to dress up. There is no doubt that she will be thrilled with this. It is a delight and just makes you smile to look at it. Great quality and fabulous for the price. You won't be disappointed. 28 November 2013
Great costume Bought for my 2 year old son nearly 3 for a fancy dress party. A bit big but he is on the small size it has plenty of room for him to grow into and would suit fancy dress when he starts school. Costume well made and had it delivered to my local Waitrose which was great! 09 January 2013
Amazing Really good quality product. Bought it for my 2 year old daughter and it fits her and just fits my 5 year old son too. 28 November 2012
Much Fun - Gruffalo Dressing-Up Costume I bought this for my 4 year old grand daughter as she loves Gruffalo, and the stories and has a stuffed one that she takes to bed. As soon as she received the Gruffalo costume she went round scaring us all and the dog (whom took no notice of her and went back to sleep). Halloween arrrived and she duly wore it and the neighbours faces were a delight. My grand daughter wears it all the time but my daughter has drawn the line in her wearing it at school. It will of course be passed on to her baby sister who arrived two weeks ago. A very welcomed gift. 23 November 2012
Great fancy dress purchase for my grandson. What a great present for my grandson to go to a fancy dress party, he will be made up! as will his grandad. 13 November 2012
Get into character! We bought this dressing up Gruffalo outfit for our 5 year old grandson for Xmas and there is no doubt that he will love it. The quality is excellent and very realistic. There will be a lot of excitement on Christmas morning. We can't wait to see the photographs when they arrive 11 November 2012
