Meeting The Gruffalo

The Munchkin’s favourite books to read are The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child. He quite loves the films too and it’s an easy way to keep him occupied when I need to get something done without him getting into everything.  So when The Reader’s Warehouse announced that The Gruffalo was doing a tour, I knew that we had to take The Munchkin to see him.
