Here we have The Gruffalo’s Child from Bookspeed. A cautionary tale about what happens when a small Gruffalo leaves the comfort of it’s cave and sets off into the dark wood on a wintry night to find the “big bad mouse”. During the journey she encounters snake, owl, and fox, each of whom she first suspects to be the big bad mouse. The story repeats the “brains over brawn” theme, the creatures, and the easy flowing rhyme scheme of it’s predecessor, ‘The Gruffalo’.
