Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler reflect on 20 years of The Gruffalo
The Smartest Giant in Town A classic tale of friendship with one very scruffy, but very kind and much loved giant. His new clothes make him the smartest giant in town, until some new friends need his help. The witch loses her hat, bow and wand which are returned by a dog, a bird and a frog, all eager for a ride on her broom. The Snail and the Whale Go on an adventure with this tiny snail and the great big grey-blue humpback whale. A little snail hitches a ride on the tail of a whale and feels so small in the vast world he sees. Following the story of a crime-fighting ladybird and her animal friends, these books would make an excellent gift for children who love The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom.

In the end he just drew a very sleepy snake. You have to take some liberties when you do picture books.
