Product description

The Gruffalo said that no gruffalo should / Ever set foot in the deep dark wood. “Why not? Why not?” “Because if you do / The Big Bad Mouse will be after you.”

One wild winter’s night, the brave little Gruffalo’s child tiptoes out in search of the Big Bad Mouse. He doesn’t really exist – does he? But when a little mouse appears, she gets an enormous surprise… Shining with imaginative power, this best-loved rhyming story is packed with cute pictures of a snaggle-toothed baby Gruffalo who will melt everybody’s heart! Now you can enjoy the experience over and over again with the original classic book to read, plus a story CD to listen along to.

“A comic masterpiece.” Independent on Sunday

    After reading the first gruffalo book to my son and him loving it i had to get this. The bonus of the cd at such a great price is great as i can show him the pictures while the cd plays.
