About the Author:

Julia Donaldson, the 2011-13 Children's Laureate, is today's most popular picture book author and a multi award-winner. Her books include the modern classic THE GRUFFALO, WHAT THE LADYBIRD HEARD and ONE TED FALLS OUT OF BED. She also writes for older children and has performed her wonderful stage shows all over the world. Axel Scheffler is a star illustrator whose warm and funny illustrations have achieved world-wide acclaim and won numerous awards. In addition to his picture books, Axel is the illustrator of wonderful novelty and gift books, such as the bestselling THE BEDTIME BEAR and MOTHER GOOSE'S NURSERY RHYMES.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2–In this sequel to The Gruffalo (Dial, 1999), the wide-eyed daughter of that story's title character decides to find the "Big Bad Mouse" that her father has told her so much about. "His eyes are like pools of terrible fire,/and his terrible whiskers are tougher than wire." With her stick doll tucked under her arm, the youngster enters the deep, dark woods and follows marks in the snow to snake, owl, and fox. When she finally finds a little mouse, she grabs him for a feast, but the clever creature tricks her into running away to the comfort of her sleeping father's arms. The full-color cartoons portray a suitably sympathetic child in the snow-filled woods. While children may appreciate the details (the stick doll, snake tracks in the snow, gruffalo child's cave drawings) in the art, lack of change from picture to picture and in perspective diminish its effectiveness. The plot, rhymes, and art are all slightly weaker than the original tale. Purchase this where the first book is popular.–Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha's Public Library, WI
