Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler talk about The Gruffalo…
“I’d originally imagined him as a bit more colourful and weird – but he’s absolutely right the way Axel drew him.” - JD
“It’s not my favourite book of all those I’ve illustrated, but I don’t
mind that people identify me with The Gruffalo. He’s a good character.
It’s fine.” - AS
