Publisher's Summary

A mouse is taking a stroll through the deep, dark woods when along comes a hungry fox, then an owl, and then a snake. The mouse is good enough to eat, but smart enough to know this - so he invents...the gruffalo! As Mouse explains, the gruffalo is a creature with terrible claws, terrible tusks in its terrible jaws, knobbly knees and turned-out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of its nose. But Mouse has no worries. After all, there's no such thing as a there?

Clever story, fun performance.

This is a clever story about a clever little mouse that my kids (3 and 5) love. I don't think the 3-yeard old would get it (without having seen the book) if she hadn't seen an animated version prior, but she'd probably still stay tuned the entire time because of the performance. The narrator does different voices for all of the animals- super fun!

I recommend this book.

My 2 year old is O B S E S S E D with this book

I've listened to this audiobook at least 20 times and I will surely listen to it at least 20 more. I listened to it twice on the way to drop off the 2 year old yesterday. He is completely obsessed with "The Grump-falo" and has been carrying the book everywhere and insisting on the audiobook in the car and occasionally in the house. Luckily this recording is excellent!
