A World inside a Book – Gruffalo, Dragons & other Creatures

Visitors will enter through a mystery porthole and step inside to meet the characters and creatures from brilliant books including A Squash and a Squeeze, The Smartest Giant in Town, Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book, Room on the Broom, The Gruffalo, Stick Man and more, from the collection of cherished children’s stories created by Julia and Axel.

Little minds will be immersed in landscapes re-imagined from the books:

-Venture through a scaled down town – created to make children feel like giants

-Explore and hop through the Monkey Puzzle jungle

-Cross the bridge over the sparkling river that takes a centre stage in the story of Stick Man

-Dress up to take your seat on the broom with The Room On The Broom

-Venture into the forest where the Gruffalo hides – if you dare!

A gallery displaying some of Axel’s original artworks will also be on display lent to Discover for the exhibition run.
