‘Once upon a time there was a boy called Charlie Cook
Who curled up in a cosy chair and read his favourite book.’

Enter the cosy sitting room of Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book and settle down for a story. But look more closely – what’s that you can see on the bookshelf?

Creep into a magical world of forests, miniature houses, dragons and other creatures. Can you spot The Gruffalo? Can you Squash and Squeeze around a life-sized cow? What’s that flying overhead, could it be Zog? Be The Smartest Giant in Town, climb through The Highway Rat’s cave, rock hop through the Monkey Puzzle jungle, discover the underwater worlds of Tiddler and The Snail and the Whale and take your seat for the ride of your life with Room on the Broom.

Take a trip into the brilliant 3-D technicolour world of the best loved children’s author, Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler, with the UK’s first immersive exhibition of their wonderful work.

Included in your ticket to A World Inside A Book: Gruffalos, Dragons and Other Creatures is the chance to get creative with our arts and crafts activities, where you can make your own Julia Donaldson inspired mini masterpiece!

You can also book for birthday parties! Find out more here >>

You can join us for the launch of the exhibition, where you can meet the Gruffalo in person, on Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 February. More details here >>
