The Gruffalo: An Orientation

Arlo and Ernie have written a very interesting orientation all about the Gruffalo. We can't wait to read the rest of the story and find out what happens! Please leave them a comment and tell them whether you could see the gruffalo in your mind by reading their orientation. Picture by Arlo.
The Gruffalo
One day something very bad happened. Something very, very bad. It started when an ugly gruffalo walked into a town and that town was made of gold. There were 16 buildings in the town all made of gold except for one, made of silver. The silver building was the building for the sherrif, who was a gruffalo fighter.
Just to tell you, the gruffalo wasn't only ugly. He also had purple prickles down his back that he could shoot at you. He had orange eyes that shot lazers and he had claws that he could rip out and throw at you. As well as that, he was twice the size of a sky scraper. So watch out, the gruffalo could be anywhere...
But don't worry, right now he was approaching the town.


  1. Hi Arlo and Ernie,
    I do hope you are going to finish this story AND post it here. I think your orientation was amazing. It hooked me and I could imagine it only too easily - how will I sleep at night now?
