…there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo. Julia Donaldson’s delightful story has been our theme at school for a few days – and on Friday we are Going On A Trip to find the beast.
The children love this tale of a strange creature …
He has knobbly knees and turned out toes
And a poisonous wart at the end of his nose,
His eyes are orange, his tongue is black;
He has purple prickles all over his back
We even have a Gruffalo Dressing Up costume. Unfortunately due to enthusiastic play, coupled with poor stitching, we had some side splitting issues – and the head started to come off!
And now he is fine and dandy and ready to stalk the wood again
This is a costume for a small child – I don’t think they make them for women my size.
