Following a sell-out season at the Edinburgh Fringe, Britain’s most popular children’s author presents a show full of magic, music and excitement. Along with four actors, including her guitar-playing husband Malcolm, Julia brings six of her stories to life with songs, puppetry, and of course an appearance by the Gruffalo himself. 

'This is an hour of storytelling that has everyone caught in its spell.' - The List
'A beloved legend busting out classics' - Three Weeks
'A truly uplifting hour . . . so much happiness and excitement in the room' - Wee Review
'This show captures all the magic of the books and much much more.' - Edinburgh Festival For Kids

The show will be followed by a book signing with Julia. Please note, only books purchased on the day from the Waterstones stand in the Rose foyer may be signed.
