Synopses & Reviews
A clever mouse outsmarts his predators by telling them his good friend the gruffalo -- a creature with terrible claws, and terrible tusks in his terrible jaws -- will eat them. When the imaginary monster actually appears, the mouse manages to outsmart him as well. This humorous, rhyming story is complemented by charming watercolor illustrations.
A clever mouse uses his imagination to conjure up a vicious "gruffalo" to ruin the appetites of the hungry woodland animals he meets. Full color.
