A World Inside a Book: Gruffalos, Dragons and Other CreaturesThink there's no such thing as a Gruffalo? Well, there is at Discover where A World inside a Book: Gruffalos, Dragons and other Creatures brings your favourite Axel Scheffler and Julia Donaldson characters to life. Enter through a mystery porthole and meet the characters from Charlie Cook (who curled up with his favourite book) to The Smartest Giant in Town. The immersive landscapes include a scaled down town so children can feel like giants, a humungous cow to squash and squeeze around and The Highway Rat's cave with cave paintings and creatures in rocks. Dress up to take your seat for The Room On The Broom, cross the bridge over the sparkly river from Stick Man or visit the dark forest where a full size Gruffalo hides.
