A clever mouse outsmarts his predators by telling them his good friend the gruffalo -- "a creature with terrible claws, and terrible tusks in his terrible jaws" -- will eat them. When the imaginary monster actually appears, the mouse manages to outsmart him as well. This humorous, rhyming story is complemented by charming watercolor illustrations.

The gruffalo

User Review  - Kaykay11 - Tesco

Brilliant book! my 1.5 year old daughter loves it and takes it everywhere ! The whole book is boardback which is brilliant so if she's looking through it (like every day 4/5 times!) it's not ripping! Which is a big plus! Hoping a boardback becomes available for the gruffalo's child Read full review
