A gruffalo? What's a gruffalo? "A gruffalo! Why, didn't you know? He has terrible tusks, and terrible claws, and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws." And so begins the story of a quick-witted mouse as he encounters a host of predators who seem to think he might make a tasty treat. As he ventures deeper into the deep dark wood, stumbling across a hungry fox, a not-so-wise owl, and a slimy snake, spinning ever-extraordinary yarns about the scary, scaly gruffalo, he quickly realises that the hungry beast he has been talking of isn't imaginary after all. The Gruffalo's Child, another magical tale from best selling author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler, will premier on BBC One as a highlight of their Christmas schedule this year. It some years later and The Gruffalo now has a daughter. Curious about her father's fantastic stories of a Big Bad Mouse in the deep, dark woods, she sets out onesnowy night on a thrilling journey of discovery. Produced by Magic Light Pictures, a half hour animated film from the same team behind the hugely successful The Gruffalo.
