He has terrible tusks... and terrible claws... and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws.
But do all those things make him the scariest creature in the deep dark wood? One brave little mouse with a big imagination doesn't think so!
When Mouse takes a stroll through the woods, he meets a fox, an owl, and a snake who all want to eat him. So clever Mouse scares them off by warning them about the gruffalo who lives in the forest, a monster with terrible teeth and terrible claws.
But what happens when Mouse's invented monster turns out to be real?
The Gruffalo is an international best-selling and award-winning sensation with over 13.5 million copies in print worldwide. It has been made into an Oscar-nominated animated film and a stage musical that was performed on Broadway, and was voted England's favorite bedtime story.
