'A mouse took a stroll through the deep, dark, wood...' so begins the tale of The Gruffalo. What's a Gruffalo? Why, didn't you know? The Gruffalo is a rhyming children's story written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. It is the ultimate tale of brain vs. brawn as a mouse convinces three predators not to eat him by inventing a monstrous 'Gruffalo'. To his surprise the mouse comes face-to-face with a real Gruffalo. He convinces the Gruffalo he is the scariest creature in the wood and the Gruffalo runs away. 

The Gruffalo was first published in 1999. Twenty years on, The Gruffalo has sold over 13.5 million copies, been translated into over 60 languages and adapted for TV, film and theatre. The Royal Mint has issued this 2019 The Gruffalo and Mouse Brilliant Uncirculated 50p, the second in a series to mark the 20th anniversary of the children's modern classic. Designed by Magic Light Pictures, the reverse features the mouse and the Gruffalo in their first scene together. The book's typeface with the words THE GRUFFALO is inscribed above. The coin's obverse hosts the 5th Portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark. Taken from the book illustrations by Axel Scheffler, the presentation sleeve cover shows the Gruffalo fleeing in fear from the mouse.
