The Gruffalo

The Gruffalo read by Alan Mandel

The Gruffalo is a children’s book by writer and playwright Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Axel Scheffler,

The story of a mouse’s walk through the woods unfolds in two phases; in both, the mouse uses clever tricks to evade danger. On his way the mouse encounters several dangerous animals (a fox, an owl, and a snake). Each of these animals, clearly intending to eat the mouse, invites him back to their home for a meal.
