About the Book

Hoping to ward off enemies, a mouse invents the gruffalo — a creature with terrible claws and tusks in its terrible jaw, and knobbly knees and turned-out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of its nose. This wonderfully rhymed tale is both amusing and a marvelous lesson in quick-thinking and imagination.
