Review text

A quick-witted mouse manages to stop a fox, an owl and a snake eating him by telling them that he is meeting a 'gruffalo', which is a terrible creature, whose favourite food is the animal in question. Each time, the animal runs off and the mouse laughs at how gullible it is. However, when the mouse meets a real gruffalo he momentarily panics before having a brainwave. (4-6 yrs) (Kirkus UK)
