Now children can play with a fabulous Gruffalo soft toy as they read the classic story. The toy is safe for all ages and comes in an attractive gift box, with THE GRUFFALO board book.
A mouse is taking a stroll through the deep, dark wood 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, and terrible tusks in its terrible jaws, and knobbly knees and turned-out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of its nose. But Mouse has no worry to show. After all, there’s no such thing as a gruffalo. . . A new generation of very young readers can now discover the Gruffalo in this toddler-friendly board book version of the best-selling picture book, winner of the Smarties Book Prize Gold Award.
With larger type and a handy-sized format, even the tiniest children will fall in love with the knobbly-kneed, black-tongued, purple-prickled Gruffalo.
A clever, exuberant story in rhyme with strong, color-saturated pictures to match . . . This is a sure bet. (Booklist) A rollicking good time. (School Library Journal)
