Gruffalo Trunki & Chums Competition

Reading Time: 3 minutes

**CLOSED** Do you want to win a Gruffalo Trunki and Gruffalo Chums set from Trunki? Well all I need you to do is write a paragraph in true Julia Donaldson style, create your own animal whose on the hunt for a “good” mouse and let your imagination run wild with you, to think up 3 new things that the Gruffalo has! So for example you will need to change the rhyme for whatever animal you think up and make up rhyming body parts with the animal recipe. I am very excited about this competition and I hope you join in!

Here’s the MummyConstant example:

A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood.
A badger saw the mouse and the mouse looked good.
“Where are you going to little brown mouse?
Come & have supper in my badgers set house.”
 “It’s terribly kind of you, Badger, but no –
I’m going to have lunch with a Gruffalo.”

 “A Gruffalo? What’s a Gruffalo?”
“A Gruffalo! Why didn’t you know?
He has scary palms, and a protective shell.
And his breathe gives off a terrible smell.”
“Where are you meeting him?”
“Here, pull up a pew,
And his favourite food is badger stew.” 

 “Badger stew! I’m off”. Badger cried.
“Goodbye, little mouse,” he ran off to hide.
“Silly old badger! Doesn’t he know,
There’s no such thing as a Gruffalo?”

    And one swipe of his paw spells certain death.”
    “Where are you meeting him?”
    “Here by this flower, and his favourite food is Badger sweet and sour.”

    “Badger sweet and sour, I’m off”, Badger said

  • A mouse was dancing down by the lake,
    When out of the grass popped a sneaky snake.
    ” your dancing is pretty by the waterside,
    why not come closer and watch me slide?”
    Little mouse smiled but whispered ” I shall have to decline,
    for I’m waiting for the gruffalo, we’re going out to dine.”

    A Gruffalo? What’s a Gruffalo?”
    “A Gruffalo! Why didn’t you know?
    He’s got fangs & sharp teeth, whiter than snow,
    with eyes like a cobweb that glisten and glow.”
    Fangsssss you say? larger than these?
    Oh yes nodded mouse watching snake slide back to the trees.
    ” Goodbye little mouse, enjoy your time with your friend ”
    snake hissed ,as she slid around the bend.

    Silly snake doesn’t she know? there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo!

  • Hi, here is my attempt 🙂

    Mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood,
    A Bat saw the mouse and the mouse looked good.
    ‘Where are you going to little brown mouse?
    Come and have lunch in my upside-down house!’
    ‘It’s terribly kind of you Bat, but no –
    I’m going to have lunch with a gruffalo.’

    ‘A gruffalo? What’s the gruffalo?’

    He has fake moustache and six ears on his head,
    He is terribly grumpy when he rolls out of bed!’

    ‘Where are you meeting him?’ ‘Right here, where it’s flat,
    And his favourite food is battered fried bat!’

    ‘Battered fried bat?’ Bat cried ‘Oh nay!’
    And he flapped his wings and flew away.

    ‘Silly old bat, doesn’t he know,
    There is no such thing as a gruffalo!’

    There’s no such thing as a Gruffalo?”

  • There was a lion who feared nothing except the crowing of cocks. A chill would go down his spine whenever he heard a cock crowing.
    One day he confessed his fear to the the Grufalo, who was greatly amused.
    “How can the crowing of a cock hurt you?” he asked the lion. “Think about it!”
    Just then a mosquito began circling the Grufalo’s head, frightening him out of his wits.
    “If it gets into my ear I’m doomed!” he shrieked, flailing at the insect with.
    Now it was the lion’s turn to feel amused.

    Moral: If we could see our fears as others see them we would realise that most of our fears make no sense!

  • Here is my entry! I hope you like it! x

    A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood.
    A Skunk saw the mouse and the mouse looked good.
    “Where are you going to little brown mouse?
    Come & hang out in my fragrant house.”
    ”It’s terribly kind of you, Skunk, but no –
    I’m going to have lunch with a Gruffalo.”
    ”A Gruffalo? What’s a Gruffalo?”

    And his tail whiffs… much smellier than you!.”

    “Goodbye, little mouse,” and off he ran and scuttered.

  • “I won’t let him beat me, I will get that mouse!”,
    the Gruffalo said to his Gruffalo spouse.
    “He may well look small and quiet and sweet,
    but Gruffalo chops are his favourite treat”.
    He thought of his child who he had to protect,
    then went out and bought the ‘Gruffalo pet’.
    Inside it’s box it shuffled about, and
    out of a hole poked a long, ginger snout.
    It snorted and snuffled, drool dripped from it’s jaws,
    the box started moving and out poked two paws.
    It’s claws were like talons and scratched they at the floor,
    the box moved again and out popped two more.
    They scrambled and scratched and scurried ahead,
    then from the top of the box poked a fear-some head.
    It was bumpy and lumpy and scaly and hairy,
    frightfully ugly and incredibly scary.
    It had eyes like steel and it’s stare was like ice,
    and it’s favourite food was curry and mice!!
