The complete story and original illustrations of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's bestselling picture book, The Gruffalo's Child , have been specially re-designed into a smaller early reader format. Created with expert advice from a literacy consultant, Let's Read! The Gruffalo's Child offers children a natural next step on from picture books to support them as they grow in reading confidence. One night, the Gruffalo's Child ignores her father's warning and tiptoes out into the snow. After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn't really exist . . . does he? 'This is a great series which, by using well-loved stories, will encourage children to become enthusiastic, independent readers.' -- Dr Fiona Maine, Lecturer in Literacy Education, University of Cambridge
