The Gruffalo's Child

The Gruffalo said that no gruffalo should ever set foot in the deep dark wood. “Why not? Why not?” “Because if you do, the Big Bad Mouse will be after you.”

One wild winter’s night, the Gruffalo’s brave little child tiptoes off in search of the Big Bad Mouse. He doesn’t really exist – does he? But when a little mouse appears, she gets a great big surprise… Shining with imaginative power, this much-loved rhyming story is an absolute classic, packed with cute pictures of a baby gruffalo who will melt everybody’s heart!
