We had woodland salad for our tea,

And food to make at different times.

From terrible teeth to make you scream

To knobbly knees and owl ice cream.

If mealtimes just don’t seem to flow

Take some tips from the Gruffalo.

Gruffalo Growl

Little children too young to know

Have never heard of the Gruffalo.

So when they hear a scary sound

They think that Snake might be around.

But that’s not Snake it’s like a growl

Could the sound have come from Owl?

It’s not Snake or Owl or Fox or Mouse

The Gruffalo is in your house.New Gruffalo books - Gruffalo Crumble and Other Recipes, Gruffalo Growl and The Gruffalo Puppet Book New Gruffalo books - Gruffalo Crumble and Other Recipes, Gruffalo Growl and The Gruffalo Puppet Book New Gruffalo books - Gruffalo Crumble and Other Recipes, Gruffalo Growl and The Gruffalo Puppet BookLittle hands will love to press

And curious minds all like to guess.

So mums of tots should take a look

At this lovely noisy Gruffalo book.

The Gruffalo Puppet Book

The Gruffalo puppet has terrible claws

Fox is frightened and runs with fast paws.

Owl is afraid of the Gruffalo’s wart

But you can just scratch it, who would have thought?

Snake’s all worried about a purple prickle

And leaves in a hurry and a bit of a pickle.New Gruffalo books - Gruffalo Crumble and Other Recipes, Gruffalo Growl and The Gruffalo Puppet Book New Gruffalo books - Gruffalo Crumble and Other Recipes, Gruffalo Growl and The Gruffalo Puppet Book New Gruffalo books - Gruffalo Crumble and Other Recipes, Gruffalo Growl and The Gruffalo Puppet Book New Gruffalo books - Gruffalo Crumble and Other Recipes, Gruffalo Growl and The Gruffalo Puppet BookBut little mouse is not concerned

The Gruffalo’s scared and children have learned,

That Gruffalo’s really not scary at all

So give him a hug, he’s only small.

    Ok, what don’t I love about the Gruffalo? I know the story word for word as I’ve been telling it to my almost 3 year old son every night since he was 9 months old! We love it in this house, we have trips based on the Gruffalo and do crafts based on it, I really NEED those books. Hope I win, everything is crossed. And I haven’t actually answered the question have I? I love that his eyes are orange, his tongue is black, he has purple prickles all over his back!

    I love The Guffalo story…it shows that a little imagination can go a hell of a long way and that the odd white lie is sometimes necessary if it does good. After all the world isn’t black and white but many shades of grey – 50 in fact, but let’s not go there..it is a children’s story after all 😉
