Illustrated by Axel Scheffler
A mouse walks through the woods and encounters a fox, an owl and a snake.
To fend them off, he tells them about the scary Gruffalo. When the mouse actually encounters the Gruffalo, he cleverly invents another tale and manages to escape from danger once again.
With suspense, rhyme, repetition and wonderful illustrations, this is the perfect interactive picture book.
