Jersey Festival of Words: The Gruffalo in Jèrriais, book launch

“Un gruffalo? Tchi dgiâtre qué ch’est?”

“Un gruffalo! As–tu ouï d’ité?“

Why, didn’t you know?!

Following the success in 2018 of J’allons à la chasse à l’ourse, a Jèrriais version of Michael Rosen’s We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, the Jèrriais Teaching Service is looking to repeat the success in 2019 with a translation of another classic children’s story, The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson. Join the little brown ‘souothis’ as we take a stroll through the deep dark ‘bouaîs’sie’.

To celebrate the launch of Lé Gruffalo, we invite families to come and enjoy storytelling and Gruffalo-themed craft activities. There’s even a chance you may get to say ‘bouônjour’ to the Gruffalo himself.

When: Saturday 28th September

Where: Victoria College's Great Hall

Time: 10am
