Oh help, oh no, it’s the Gruffalo!

We’ve had a superb day today, celebrating the wonderful accolade of becoming Julia Donaldson’s bookshop of the month for November. Not bad for a little local business heh?


Not only did we give out well out over 100 goodie packs, we also gave visiting teachers gorgeous bunting for their classrooms. For those of you that missed it, we have stickers and postcards left, so do pop in.


Our heartfelt thanks go out to the glorious Julia Donaldson and the team at Pan MacMillan, as well as our ever supportive customers. We’ve had a brilliant time, sharing the Gruffalo with you at Chicken and Frog and around the town. A special thanks to Grandad Chicken who took charge whilst the Gruffalo went out and about and also to our brilliant daughters who helped run the show. We could not have managed without you.

Here’s a selection of pics from the day. Do you recognise anyone?




The independent children's bookshop and tuition centre in the heart of Brentwood, Essex. Owned and run by Mr Frog & Mrs Chicken (happily married book-nerds), with the sole aim of bringing high quality books and tuition to our community.
