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 gruffalo...is 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.

Mouse vs. Gruffalo

I liked the rhythm and style of the writer. However, my 3 yr old male child did not understand the significance of the mouse telling all those lies & it helping him towards & @ the end. It really should be labeled as 5 yrs and over for that reason. I believe. Otherwise, it's a great story! Junemarie
