Prince William reveals children's book favorite in the Royal household

Are your kids reading what like royalty???

At a recent Kensington Palace event, Prince William spotted author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler and is quoted as saying, "I know who you are. It’s a big hit in our household, The Gruffalo."

If you're not familiar with the book, here's a quick description from its Amazon page:

A mouse is taking a stroll through the deep, dark wood when along comes a hungry fox, then an owl, and then a snake. The mouse is good enough to eat but smart enough to know this, so he invents . . . the gruffalo! As Mouse explains, the gruffalo is a creature with terrible claws, and terrible tusks in its terrible jaws, and knobbly knees and turned-out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of its nose. But Mouse has no worry to show. After all, there’s no such thing as a gruffalo. . . .
