The Gruffalo

The Gruffalo, a children's book by Julia Donaldson with illustrations by Axel Scheffler, has recently been voted the UK's favourite bedtime story. It took a fifth of the 20,000 votes in a BBC Radio 2 poll, knocking Winnie The Pooh and The Very Hungry Caterpillar into second and third place respectively. First published in 1999, The Gruffalo has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. In Spain it is known as El Grufalo. Elitist twits harbour the daft notion that useless articles like Tracey Emin represent British art. Not so. Our book illustrators and many other fine artists do that.
