Product description

When Mouse takes a stroll through the woods, he meets a fox, an owl, and a snake who all want to eat him! So Mouse invents a gruffalo, a monster with "terrible tusks and terrible claws, terrible teeth, and terrible jaws." But will Mouse's frightful description be enough to scare off his foes? After all, there's no such thing as a gruffalo . . . is there? Sturdy pages and a cozy trim make this rhyming read-aloud perfect for preschoolers. Winner of the prestigious British Smarties Prize.

This book is just perfect for any little person. Our 7 year old has memorized it!
The Board book is great for little hands and is very sturdy and will last longer than the paperback version.
Its a rhyming story which is very cute and has a very surprising twist at the end. The pictures are very colourful and funny.
We love it!
