Listen to the sequel, Gruffalo's Child.
©1999 Julia Donaldson, Axel Scheffler; (P)2008 Penguin
My two year old loves the gruffalo book. I bought the audio book and she listens to it every night as she goes off to sleep. A wonderful rhyming story with descriptive characters and a lovely ending. My daughter now recites it word for word.
A gorgeous story, warmly narrated and just the right length for little ones. My pre-schooler wants to hear this over and over and if you have the book, this narration brings out it's magic even more. We read and listen to a lot of books together and this is definitely one of her favourites.
"Clever story, fun performance."
This is a clever story about a clever little mouse that my kids (3 and 5) love. I don't think the 3-yeard old would get it (without having seen the book) if she hadn't seen an animated version prior, but she'd probably still stay tuned the entire time because of the performance. The narrator does different voices for all of the animals- super fun!
I recommend this book.
"Mouse vs. Gruffalo"
I liked the rhythm and style of the writer. However, my 3 yr old male child did not understand the significance of the mouse telling all those lies & it helping him towards & @ the end. It really should be labeled as 5 yrs and over for that reason. I believe. Otherwise, it's a great story! Junemarie
The story, of course, is wonderful. The reading, however, is ATROCIOUS!
My 4 yr old loves to listen to this one over and over. The narrator does a great job with the characters and he doesn't get too soft or too loud.
"Bigger and scarier!"
Little mouse can't be eaten for lunch! He must prove to the gruffalo that he is fierce and feared.
Cute reading to pair with the physical book.
"Good Story, but No Pictures."
This is a very cute story, but I wish that the illustrations had been included in this audio book edition.
"terrific narrator & wonderful children's book"
I am so glad I purchased this book. the narrator is wonderful. the story comes alive as she reads it. my children were glued to every word. we listened to this story in the car and the kids were so good during the drive as soon as the story ended they were asking for another. I am going to look for more stories by the same narrator.
My kids loved it. It kept their attention. They wanted to hear it right away again. Great narrator and story.
"Kids love it"
My kids love listening to this. Lots of smiles and laughs, good performance. Fun for the car
Movie has better voicing but this is fine for quick car rides or short listening times for toddlers
