Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Axel Scheffler
Embark on a daring adventure through the forest and discover what happens when a clever mouse comes face to face with a hungry fox, owl, snake and an imaginary monster (but is he?).
From the bestselling duo Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler (also known for Room on the Broom, The Snail and the Whale, Stick Man), the strong rhythm, catchy rhymes and familiar repetition begs for it to be read out loud, again and again. No wonder it’s become a modern children’s classic.
For: Little monsters aged 3+
After more? Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the deep dark wood, delve into the sequel, The Gruffalo's Child.
