Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for your preschoolers bookshelf Both my son and I have loved this book! The pictures are gorgeous (they reminded me a lot of "Where the Wild Things are"), the story is so easy and fun to read, and it's full of birds and animals to mimic when you go through that phase where your kids love to tell you what noises any animal makes. The sequel is also fabulous. An excellent gift for any child.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Parent entertainment This is one of the few books that I look forward to reading my kids at bedtime. And I don't mind reading it night after night. Sometimes my husband comes to listen to this entertaining story as well. The sequel 'The Gruffalo's Child' is just as good. Both books are worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Book This is a classic story about a mouse who walks into the woods and the animals he meets along the way. The story is very cute and has a rythym and rhyme pattern to it that kids just love - It has been read over repeatedly in my classroom. The Gruffalo is a must have for any teachers or family collection !
