About Julia Donaldson

Julia and the Gruffalo visited BBC Scotland in May 2010 and the video shows the fun we all had that day! Julia is best-known for her book The Gruffalo, illustrated by Axel Scheffler, which has sold over 4 million copies and was adapted for BBC One last Christmas. While working as a singer/songwriter, one of Julia's songs A Squash and a Squeeze was turned into a book which set her off on a career as an author. Since then she's published over 20 books including Running on the Cracks, a novel for teenagers, and Tiddler, the most borrowed book in Scottish libraries in 2009. Julia lives in Glasgow and has just had Zog published, a dragon story, co writen with Axel Scheffler. The illustrator is award-winning Emily Gravett.
