A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood.
A fox saw the mouse and the mouse looked good.

Walk further into the deep dark wood, and discover what happens when a quick-witted mouse comes face to face with an owl, a snake… and a hungry Gruffalo!


We adore this book. The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson is colourful, fun and keeps our little ones fully engaged.
The repetition and rhyme used throughout the story keeps kids wanting more and anticipating what is to come.

The story also highlights that even the smallest creature can be fierce when it uses its brain and wit. The mouse in this case outwits every animal, including The Gruffalo, the biggest, scariest animal in this forest.
Not only did the kids love this book (its on a high rotation at our place) the grown-ups here love it too. Highly recommend this book for you and your little ones.
