Story Time Book, August 11th – The Gruffalo
This week’s Get Into Reading book is a classic tale of brains over brawn: The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.
This beautifully-illustrated book depicts the intrepid mouse outwitting a variety of predatory animals. How? By casually mentioning that he’s waiting for his buddy, the (supposedly) fictional Gruffalo who just happens to dine on the likes of ‘scrambled snake’. Needless to say, the animals don’t wait around to become a monstrous hors d’oeuvre.
“Silly old snake, doesn’t he know?
There’s no such thing as a Gruffalo!”
Or is there?
Join us in every Eason store in Ireland at 11am this Saturday (August 11th) to hear the story of a tiny, yet cunning, mouse navigating his way through the deep, dark wood.
