Adapted into an Oscar-nominated animated short, The Gruffalo features a sneaky mouse outwitting various forest animals who are anxious to gobble him up by scaring them off with tales of the ferocious Gruffalo. But what will the mouse do when the Gruffalo actually shows up?! With its bouncy pace and bright, silly illustration, this is perfect for storytime and read-along.
