The Gruffalo

(197 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books

In this much-loved picture book, a little mouse walks through the woods and encounters a fox, an owl and a snake.

To fend them off, he tells each about the scary Gruffalo - but when the mouse actually encounters the Gruffalo himself, he cleverly invents another tale and manages to escape from danger yet again.

Blending a suspenseful story with a rhyming text and wonderful illustrations, this is the perfect interactive picture book - and a deserving family favourite.
