Author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler created the panels as a “light-hearted” way of spreading the message.

They feature The Gruffalo, Stickman, and The Smeds and The Smoos — all keeping a safe distance from one another.

The characters are also seen helping the vulnerable with their shopping.

The Gruffalo was first published in 1999, and tells the story of a mouse taking a walk in the woods — where he out-smarts a terrifying creature with terrible teeth and a “poisonous wart on the end of his nose”.

It went on to sell 13 million copies, and had been turned into a stage play and an Oscar-nominated animation.
