The Gruffalo - social distancing

Author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler have joined forces to reimagine the beloved children's stories to help youngsters adjust to living through lockdown.

The pair have brought to life a series of images detailing the Gruffalo, Stick Man, The Smeds and The Smoos and Zog all observing social distancing measures, and showing how they are all coping.

The twelve new stories are a lighthearted attempt at helping parents explain to children all the different rules that are now in place to prevent the spread of the deadly virus. Take a look here



Donaldson is also hosting live video sessions at 4pm every Thursday on The Gruffalo's Facebook page.
