"Wonderful Children's Picture Book "
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A delightful tale of a clever mouse that outwits his greedy forest friends. My class loved the tale of the mouse and The Gruffalo. I have read the book 3 times and have decided to base my next reading unit on it. My students can't get enough of this wonderful book by Julia Donaldson – it is sure to entertain and inspire!

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Excellent book, highly recommended.


A gruffalo? What's a gruffalo?

A gruffalo! Why, didn't you know? He has terrible tusks, and terrible claws, and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws.

A quick-witted mouse takes a stroll through the deep-dark wood. When Fox, Owl and Snake want to eat him, he makes up tales of a fearful Gruffalo to scare them.

But what will Mouse do when he stumbles upon a real live hungry Gruffalo?
