一家为盲人和弱视者设立的慈善机构英国导盲犬( Guide Dogs UK )制作了一套伴书气味盒,以配合畅销儿童故事书《咕噜牛( The Gruffalo )》。该机构创造了一套鼻腔吸入器,分别代表主人公咕噜牛和它遇到的四个角色:蛇、狐狸、猫头鹰和小老鼠。

The Gruffalo was first published in 1999, but the charity Guide Dogs UK say they've created a world first.

《咕噜牛》故事书最早出版于1999年,但慈善机构英国导盲犬表示,他们创造出了一个世界第一。

Each character has been given their own smell. They include cupcakes for Mouse, freshly cut grass for Fox, and a leathery barnyard scent for the Gruffalo.

书中的每个角色都有自己的气味。其中,小老鼠是纸杯蛋糕味,狐狸是新鲜割草味,还有咕噜牛是皮革和农家庭院味。

Roger Whalley, whose eight-year-old daughter, Josie, has a visual impairment, was among the first to test the book.

罗杰·沃利是第一批体验这本气味故事书的人,他八岁的女儿乔茜患有视力障碍。

Guide Dogs UK say they hope the book will make reading as inclusive as possible and plan to distribute 150 of the kits as a start.

慈善机构英国导盲犬希望这本书能让阅读尽可能地更具包容性,并计划先分发150套伴书气味盒。
