As a parent, I think this is a great book. I love the art style and actually got a sense of nostalgia as some of the forest images brought back childhood memories of time spent in the Northern woods where I grew up. Also, it was a joy to find that the writing flows beautifully. Some rhyming books seem forced in places and you know the author struggled. This book has a natural flow and rhythm that is a delight to read aloud over and over and over ...

The message of the book is that size doesnt matter, that it is more important to use your wits. I particularly like the chorus 'silly old fox (snake/owl), doesnt he know, there's no such thing as a gruffalo', as it makes the reader feel that they are outwitting the fox/snake/owl, and finally even the Gruffalo itself.
My son loves this book and so do I - the rhyming sentences skip along the page and the humor will have kids smiling. After so many readings, the words flow like a favored nursery rhyme but the illustrations always add to the thrill of a little mouse being delightfully daring and duping the crowd!
A great addition to storytime. Buy it - it's fun to read and it is a great book for kids with a sense of humor.

It started with Stickman, that book was so fun.
As far as I'm concerned, the rhymes are A-1.
Son loves this book. I had to order this one to replace the other one

An absolute classic of a book. My 2 year old granddaughter loves it. And I love reading it to her.Published 6 months ago by MEENO
I love this story. It's so clever. The board book is so much better than the paperback for obvious reasons I think (it stands up to toddlers!).Published 6 months ago by marci siebold
