Axel Scheffler

Axel Scheffler

Axel Scheffler is best known for his work with Julia Donaldson; their bestselling modern classic, The Gruffalo, has sold over 13.5 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over 60 languages.

Axel has been a much valued supporter of the National Literacy Trust since 2010. An unfailingly popular guest author at our annual gala dinner, Axel has generously donated numerous pieces of artwork for auction over the years and designed a one-off Gruffalo Christmas card for our ‘Gift of Reading’ campaign. In 2014 he created a unique BookBench for our Books about Town project, which brought to life the book characters he created with Julia Donaldson and proved hugely popular with the general public.
