Product description

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. . . .

I agree 100% with a previous user comment... Changing the text to Americanize phrases has completely altered the rhyme and flow of the book and makes it lose it's charm... Disappointed that Amazon didn't say where the book was edited, or offer another version. Would have never ordered if I knew that it was changed from the original that my kids love.@@@@Lovely, catchy book

Not my "favourite" version...

What a fun silly book.Love the story line and the illustration. I bought this after watching 30 min cartoon made from this book that is available on Amazon prime video. It was so cute and made me smile that I went and bought the book. I recently went camping with my 3, 4, and 5 year old nieces and read them this story as a scary story. Lots of laughs and giggles. Board book is a good size and has taken a beating.@@@@Must Have!

We LOVE this book! I don’t know how I missed it until recently, but my 3-yr-old LOVES it, and my 12-month old is starting to love it, too! He has memorized most of the good parts about the gruffalo, and the rhymes and cadence are so lovely. We like to read the book, then watch “The Gruffalo” on Netflix (also SO cute). Then we read “The Gruffalo’s Child,” and watch that! Such a fun, clever book! I find myself thinking of the lines at work!@@@@Little ones (& dad/Mom) love it!

I found the story to be very cute and would definitely read to kids. It shows that being clever can get you quite far. Just watch out for that غرفول in the forest!@@@@Great story

This story was new to me, but I really liked it. I saw right away that the Gruffalo reminded me of Where The Wild Things Are. The Gruffalo looked like some of the characters in Where the wild Thing Are. The illustrations are fantastic, the rhyming of the words are perfect and the main characters are the mouse and the Gruffalo. The other animals make the story come alive because the mouse outwits them all and they're suppose to be the most scary animals there are. The end of the story where the Gruffalo becomes afraid of the mouse is beautiful. I would recommend this book for the last semester of the 1st grade and the 2nd grade.@@@@

We are big fans of this short movie so when I saw the book, it was a must have for my kids. Before receiving, I had concerns about the length keeping the attention of my 2.5 year old but it is perfect; not too long while still including important details. We have fun reading it using a variety of voices to distinguish all of the characters. This will be read many times for years to come!@@@@Cute story, great for kids.
