Gruffalo illustrator Axel Scheffler completed the biggest Gruffalo of all time on the wall of a West London school library today – a gift purchased and donated to the school by War Horse author Michael Morpurgo. Morpurgo purchased the commission at a fundraising dinner hosted by Waterstones, for Booktrust’s Children’s Reading Fund, in September 2013. He visited Brackenbury Primary School this afternoon, where he opened the library last year, to watch Scheffler put the finishing touches on a mural of the whole Gruffalo cast, which he had spent two days creating.
