A guide to Julia Donaldson’s books and series
You’ve journeyed into the deep dark wood with the Gruffalo and jumped on the broom with the witch, her cat and her very tall hat, but have you read these other brilliant books by Julia Donaldson and her amazing illustrators?
Julia Donaldson's modern classic The Gruffalo has been read and loved by children for over twenty years. If your little one is a fan of the creature with terrible tusks and terrible claws and you're looking for more books by Julia Donaldson and her illustrator partners, read on for our guide to her other bestselling stories.
Starting on 2 April and running for ten weeks, every Thursday at 4 pm Julia will be sharing some of her most-loved songs, stories and poems on The Official Gruffalo Facebook page. She’s also enlisted the help of several illustrators, including Axel Scheffler (The Gruffalo) and Lydia Monks (What the Ladybird Heard series), to help teach little ones how to draw their favourite characters. You can watch ‘Julia Donaldson and Friends’ here.
