Oh Help! Oh No. . .

It's a Gruffalo!

This was our first year Trick or Treating though I have dressed Joss up in years past. I wasn't sure how it would go down but spent the day talking about Halloween and Trick or Treating with Joss. I choose her costume in as much as I picked it up around Easter time on sale for dressing up but it has never really gotten used as she as of yet is not really interested in dressing up.

To be honest if we hadn't been meeting up with a friend pretty sure she wouldn't have put the costume on. It took some convincing that the only way she could go trick or treating was to have a costume on. 

Once she had done the first house with her friend who is 3 years older she was gung-ho and had a brilliant time. We just hit about 5 houses on the street that we know well and she was pretty happy with her haul of candy.

Is the Gruffalo big in the UK? We have the Gruffalo's Child movie but otherwise haven't seen much here. I never even thought of a gruffalo costume! Cute. Cute. Cute.

It is huge over here, I believe the author and illustrator are English. We have a number or other books by them I love the rhythm of each one and enjoy reading them out loud to Joss. There is a wooded walk about 45 minutes from us that features all the characters from the Gruffalo and the Gruffalo's Child Joss was a bit young when we took her in the spring but think next spring it will be a perfect outing.
