Since the story of the creature with the terrible tusks and the terrible claws and the brave little brown mouse was introduced to young readers in 1999, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s The Gruffalo has been adapted for TV and stage, inspired a woodland walk (complete with giant sculptures), and even a recipe book. 

Featuring characters from The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child, these free colouring sheets make a great indoor activity for kids of all ages. Children big and small can get creative with these free printable A4 colouring sheets - they’re perfect for a rainy day!
