Publisher's Summary

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

Here's a rhyming story of a mouse and a monster. Little mouse goes for a walk in a dangerous forest. To scare off his enemies, he invents tales of a fantastical creature called the Gruffalo. So imagine his surprise when he meets the real Gruffalo.

    "Amazing reading!"

    Kids and I love this book so much. We read it so many times we know all lyrics! The voice here is so special. You feel you are in the story at the same time. Very good.

    "Poor free book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    We love this story and so downloaded the free one but it misses the beginning and the end! Not impressed!

    "One of the all time great childrens books"

    I have been reading my children the Gruffalo since they were born, and this audio book has taken that to a whole new level. It is heir favorite book, one that they enjoy listening to again and again. And so do I. Masterful story telling for children of all ages.

    "Brilliant childrens title"

    This is a great title for the kids to listen to, the narration is outstanding and the Gruffalo song at the end makes it a good listen to/sing along for the kids in the car.
