Gruffalo ClipartOn April 13, our 2 p.m. Family Funday Sunday featured that creature with terrible tusks, and terrible claws, and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws. You know the one – with knobbly knees and turned-out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of his nose. That fella whose eyes are orange, whose tongue is black, and who has those purple prickles all over his back!

Oh, yeah… It was all about him!

Here are more Gruffalo stories to read and watch.

From the Academy of American Poets:

"On Poem in Your Pocket Day, people throughout the United States select a poem, carry it with them, and share it with others throughout the day. You can also share your poem selection on Twitter by using the hashtag #pocketpoem. Poems from pockets are unfolded throughout the day with events in parks, libraries, schools, workplaces, and bookstores."
