Modern day children's book comes to life in Caloundra

The Gruffalo, written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, is children's story book that has stood the test of time. It has sold over 10.5 million copies worldwide and has won several prizes for children's literature.

However, it is The Gruffalo's most recent achievement that has got children excited about the storyline, which, in the form a of play, brings to life the story of a mouse who goes for a walk in the woods.

The Gruffalo will be performed in Caloundra on May 29 at 12noon and 3pm.

The Gruffalo follows Mouse into the deep dark wood on a lunchtime hunt for hazelnuts. Armed with just a nut map and a very vivid imagination, Mouse runs into the smirking, wheeler-dealer Fox; an eccentric, retired Woodland Air Force General Owl; and the maraca-shaking, party animal Snake.

Rather than becoming the main course of their next meal, Mouse kills their appetites with stories of an imaginary monster friend. Little does this clever critter know but Mouse will have to escape the jaws of this faux protector as well.

After enjoying success in London's West End, Broadway and a sell-out Brisbane season, Christine Dunstun Productions will bring The Gruffalo to visit children on the Sunshine Coast.
