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

Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s The Gruffalo has become a bestselling phenomenon across the world. This rhyming story of a mouse and a monster is now a modern classic and beloved by young and old alike.
