This is currently my daughter's favourite book and film! A charming story about a little mouse who takes a walk into the deep dark woods, meeting a whole host of predators along the way.
Narrated by a squirrel to her two children, who has the most wonderful tone of voice. The poem structure works well and the characters are fantastic, especially the cute but brave little mouse and the not so mean gruffalo.
Sure to be a children's favourite for many years to come.
