It also says it is celebrating 20 years, and shows a Gruffalo holding a coin.

The Gruffalo, created by former children’s laureate Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler, has enchanted a generation of children for two decades.

The rhyming story of a mouse and a monster has sold more than 13.5 million copies across the world, according to publishers Pan Macmillan.
