Oh help! Oh no! It's a Gruffalo!

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin. Well, actually not me, but Charlie. Here he is 'reading' his favourite book to Eloise, who looks attentive and interested at first and then seems rather less gripped by the story. Or maybe by the rendition. It does lose a little bit in the translation, especially towards the end.

  1. Oh bless him. I too have read the Gruffalo many many times and now know it off by heart.

    I am currently being forced to learn The Gruffalo's Child.

  2. We're graduating to that one too, HC... and it's a worthy sequel!

  3. Hehehehehe a nice post Tim! It seems Eloise has a lot of fun while Charlie reads.

    As a father of a baby boy since July 2010, the video seems very nice to me.

    Kind regards,

    Antonio

  4. She enjoys it at first, Antonio... but then seems to find her fingernails more interesting. Mind you, she hasn't a clue what he's going on about!

  5. A superb choice of book. I can also highly recommend "Charlie Cook's Favourite Book" by the same authors.

  6. That sounds like a 'must have' Steve, for someone called Charlie. I shall seek it out immediately.

  8. He's got theatrical blood, Trish... on his father's side. I'm such a prima donna, as you know!

  9. Silly old Eloise. A Gruffalo's favorite food is deep-fried baby fingers! (Now THAT'S the way I would have told it! Then she would have paid attention!)

  11. My daughter enjoyed watching Charlie read to Eloise, and said "The Gruffalo? That's a great book!" Well done, big brother!
