Unworthy Sequel

Amanda Craig is disappointed by The Gruffalo's Child:

Unlike the first book, there is nobody really to root for. Children want to be on the side of the Gruffalo?s Child because she?s one of them right up until the moment that she tries to eat the mouse. It needs a further twist to the tale. Despite its charm, this, sadly, is not a worthy sequel to an inspired modern classic.
