It is one of 12 books by author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler to feature in A World Inside a Book: Gruffalos, Dragons and Other Creatures.
The pair joined children from across the borough to launch the exhibition at the High Street, Stratford centre, which opens on Saturday.
Julia said: “It’s always exciting when someone takes our books in a different direction.
“We’ve had plays and films, and now this imaginative and interactive exhibition.”
