      My boy brought this to me a couple days ago, asking if I'd read it to him.I did, and it's quickly become a new favorite.It's not terribly complex, or long, or ethically enriching. But then again, not all books need to be. What this book does have is a marvelously tight and deceptively effortless rhyme and meter. I say "deceptively" here because I know that sort of thing doesn't come easily. Despite the fact that the book is wonderful fun to read, I know the author sweat blood making the language [...]

      Brains beat brawns every time. The Gruffalo teaches children to be patient and understanding. Whilst not necessarily advocating the cunning manipulation that the mouse utilises, it does suggest that there is more to people than their outward appearance. Just because someone may appear “scary” doesn’t mean they’re a bad person, and innocent seeming things can be the worse. Judge only on actions not how one appears.

      Julia Donaldson’s stories never fail to delight, and this picture book of The Gruffalo is one of the very best. First published in 1999, the scary gruffalo has become one of the world’s best-loved monsters, starring in films and shows galore, and inspiring a huge amount of merchandise. This is the original picture book which started it all, and which has itself won many awards, been translated into over fifty languages, and has been voted the UK’s favourite bedtime story.It begins with a s [...]

      Another delightful rhyming story from the pen of Julia Donaldson with brilliant accompanying illustrations by Axel Scheffler.Donaldson and Scheffler are a formidable team (although not quite rivalling that of Dahl and Blake) and this is undoubtedly one of their classics. The Gruffalo is a great character and creation loved by adults and children alike. Although well adapted for television and stage versions - nothing can compare to the original story and illustrations.

      The Gruffalo, by Julia Donaldson is a cute rhyming story about a mouse and a gruffalo. We loved the combination of the sly little mouse and gullible gruffalo."My favorite food!" the gruffalo said."You'll taste good on a slice of bread!""Good?" said the mouse. "Don't call me good!I'm the scariest creature in this deep dark wood.Just walk behind me and soon you'll see,everyone is afraid of me."The illustrations are detailed and interesting. Overall, its a charming little story children will enjoy. [...]

      Have just bought this and all the toys to go with it for my little nephew. Hope he's going to like it as much as I did!

      This is a totally awesome book. My children read it at school and they really loved it. And of course we bought the book and we saw the movie.And then we read the book again again and again :-)It is a clever story about a little mouse and a scary (not really) monster, the Gruffalo. The intelligent sourceful little mouse manipulated the bigger animals who wanted to eat him. He made them think that he is scarier than Gruffalo. Thus, he should not be eaten.The little mouse though that Gruffalo is a [...]

      Delightful!I've heard of this book, and my kids have seen the cartoon on Netflix, yet we hadn't read the book until recently, when my sister gave it to my youngest. We love Donaldson's Room on the Broom, and this is more of the same. Tight, elegant rhymes, a fun story, and great pictures. Now we need The Gruffalo's Child!

      اولین بار انیمیشنش را دیدم. انیمیشن کوتاهی بود. داستان به نظرم حیرت انگیز بود. داستان را شب برای پسرم از حفظ گفتم. قدم به قدم. همانطوری که توی انیمیشن دیده بودم. پلک نمی زد. وقتی موش قصه به گروفالوی خیالی رسید داشت سکته می کرد:)وقتی دیدم کانون ترجمه‌اش کرده خریدمش. پریشب‌ها برای [...]

      Despite the lead character a rather scary looking monster, this is a fun bedtime read geared at younger children. The story is told through rhyme, as we meet various animals who cross paths with the giant Gruffalo. With beautifully unique illustrations, this is a perfect gift for young readers.

      A tiny mouse uses his wits to avoid becoming someone's lunch and in doing so, becomes king of the deep, dark forest. ADORABLE!

      قصة طريفة عن فأر ذكي. استطاع أن يتغلب على كل الحيونات التي حاولت افتراسه بحيله الذكية. أجمل ما في القصة أنها تشجع الأطفال على حل المشاكل بطرق مبتكرة بدلا من الهروب منها.

      I hadn't read this book since my childhood, loved it!Great opportunities to look at rhyme and rhythm with children. The repetitive line of 'there's no such thing as Gruffalo' would be lovely for EAL children to join in too. You could also explore Donaldson's use of alliteration with children. Children could create more animals for the mouse to meet and their own rhymes for them. In science, children could look at the different habitats in which the animals live in. Good morals about not having t [...]

      Popular kids books are powerful vehicles of merchandise. Take The Hungry Caterpillar (as just one example) - you can buy the book, the cardboard book, the cloth book, the colouring book, the pop-up book, the touch-and-feel book, the finger-puppet book, the audio book, the baby 'development toy', the plushy toy, the 'big apple' toy, the play floor tiles, the bedspread, the toothbrush, the body-wash, the bubble-bath, the playroom stickers, the height chart, the calendar, the garden water toy, the [...]

      Julia Donaldson does an excellent job on writing this creative story book. The first time I read the story, I initially felt it was a very long read for children as I thought it was long myself and repetitive but upon reading it a second, third time, I realised I had not fully appreciated how good the storybook was. Complete with rhyme and repitition it captured my attention and the children to whom I was reading to. The use of animals was a good idea as children were able to point out different [...]

      I've read this a billion times this year since it's my 5-year-old's favorite book. It's so dang cute. He adores it and I think it's adorable.

      Czytam tę książkę przynajmniej raz dziennie od około miesiąca i nadal nie zaczęłam jej nienawidzić (a taki los spotyka niestety większą część literatury dziecięcej, którą czytuję dzieciom na głos, w kółko i w kółko) - więc zdecydowanie co najmniej cztery gwiazdki i oklaski. A dziś śniły mi się węże ze szczypiorkiem (pozdrawiam p. Michała Rusinka).

      This is classic children’s book. A very clever mouse takes a stroll through the deep dark woods and encounters a series of animals, from a fox, to an owl to a snake, who all want to eat him. He frightens them by telling them that he’s on his way to meet a Gruffalo that has terrible tusks, terrible claws, terrible claws and terrible jaws. They all get scared and run away. Then all of a sudden, when the mouse is strolling in the woods, he comes face to face with the Gruffalo and he also wants [...]

      The Gruffalo, by Julia Donaldson The Gruffalo is about a cheeky and confident little mouse who defends himself from an array of predators, whilst walking through ‘a deep dark wood’. He defends himself through words rather than violence. He does this by outsmarting the naïve predators by claiming that he is about to meet a ‘Gruffalo’, a mythical beast. The mouse frightens the predators by giving them vivid descriptions of the beast - ironically, the mouse does meet the 'Gruffalo', and ou [...]

      My daughter really enjoys this book along with Where The Wild Things Are. Everyday before bed time we read this. Many times more than once and enjoy it every single time.

      In the big dark woods, a mouse is going for a walk when he meets a fox that, thinking the mouse looks like a good meal, tries to lure him back to his den. The mouse is an intelligent little thing, and explains to the fox that he can't come because he's having lunch with a gruffalo. The fox has never heard of a gruffalo before, so the mouse starts to describe a terrible monster who likes to eat roasted fox. The fox, terrified, runs away. The mouse is molested by an owl next, and then a snake, and [...]

      I first came across the Gruffalo when BBC3 pretty much kept it on replay. I then decided to buy the book for my niece and found that its far far better in comparison to the film version. What enhanced the qualities of the book even more was the fact that it had sounds! This meant that my niece could not only listen to me read, but join in by associating the correct sound with the right animal. The book is very bright with lovely illustrations thus making it even more appealing (even without havi [...]

      This book is about a mouse who took a stroll into the woods, along his way he scares a fox, an owl and a snake by telling them the story of the gruffalo who eats them for dinner. The mouse then runs into the gruffalo and he is hungry for mice. The mouse advised the gruffalo that everyone is afraid of him and that the gruffalo should be scared. To prove himself he advised the gruffalo to follow him behind, as they walk through the woods they come across the fox, the owl and the snake who run away [...]

      I really enjoyed reading this beautifully illustrated story, in which a small mouse escapes the clutches of woodland creatures Fox, Owl and Snake by outsmarting them his imagination and creativity (a classic case of how brain can overcome brawn).Mouse creates the story of a hideous and fierce 'Gruffalo' unawares to him that such creature actually exists, ‘Silly old snake doesn't he know there is no such thing as a Gruffalo'. On encountering the hideous creature himself, Mouse successfully conv [...]
