Out of the shadow, Samuel Sprat came and told he could stay as a busker’s cat hereafter. And they both started to live happily ever after.

Kids observation:

Like many kids, My daughter loves books, and she note down each and everything from the book. She observes keenly, and one best example is she found Gruffalo (Gruffalo is one of the most famous books from the same author) from this page, which I didn’t notice at all. Can you all locate the Gruffalo?
