Bookworm is celebrating 20 years of The Gruffalo with a fun day for the family

Dubai's The Bookworm Bookshop is celebrating all things The Gruffalo with a fun family day at their store in The Meadows Souk.

To celebrate 20 years of Julia Donaldson's rhyming masterpiece about a scary Gruffalo, and an even more terrifying little mouse, Bookworm is giving away free copies of the much-loved story.

But hurry little Gruffalo hunters as the free book offer is only on while stocks last.

It's a monster birthday for the picture book, which has been made into a cartoon adaption starring the voices of James Cordon and Helena Bonham Carter.

There is even a follow-up story about the animals in the deep dark wood. The Gruffalo's Child is about the little daughter of the big furry creature with terrible tusks, and terrible claws, and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws, who disobeys her daddy.
Free. Sat Nov 30 8am-8pm. The Bookworm Bookshop, Meadows Souk, The Meadows, Emirates Living, www.bookworm.ae (04 368 9822).
