The Gruffalo said that no Gruffalo should, Ever set foot in the deep dark wood. But one wild and windy night the Gruffalo's Child ignores her father's warning and tiptoes out into the snow. After all the Big Bad Mouse doesn't really exist . . . does he?

Great for car journeys, a story that my daughter knows (and loves) that isn't too painful to listen to (unlike Peppa Pig :-)).
Well read by Imelda Staunton, nice work getting into the characters. My daughter loves listening to this and following it through the book - just like reading all by herself ! The story is lovely but not so sure about the song at the end, though I'm sure the more it's listened to the easier it would be to sing-a-long
Yes good. Needs pages or visual aids to keep child interested if being looked at
Love the story and the narration is good, shame about the Character voices, would have paid more to have an additional reader.
As the Gruffalo books are such a hit with my two year old niece, I downloaded this audio book for her to listen to in the car. This sequel to "The Gruffalo" is an absolute winner...the words and story are so clever that even adults reading it for the first time are enthralled. My usually crazy-energetic niece sat quietly for 15 minutes with big eyes while she listened to it. We love the Gruffalo much that I've put together a Gruffalo puppet show based on this story and the first one to do at my niece's third birthday party!
My daughter requests to listen to this all the time, in the car and in bed. The narration by Imelda Staunton is brilliant at bringing out the story without the aid of the pictures.
"My kids' favorurite, and very well read :)"
This is a great audiobook and song, very well performed. The song is catchy and easy to learn.
Great story combined with a great performance. Listened to time and again by my son and his friends.
