Publisher's Summary

"A mouse took a stroll
through the deep dark wood.
A fox saw the mouse
And the mouse looked good."

Here's a rhyming story of a mouse and a monster. Little mouse goes for a walk in a dangerous forest. To scare off his enemies, he invents tales of a fantastical creature called the Gruffalo. So imagine his surprise when he meets the real Gruffalo.

One of the all time great childrens books

I have been reading my children the Gruffalo since they were born, and this audio book has taken that to a whole new level. It is heir favorite book, one that they enjoy listening to again and again. And so do I. Masterful story telling for children of all ages.

Brilliant childrens title

This is a great title for the kids to listen to, the narration is outstanding and the Gruffalo song at the end makes it a good listen to/sing along for the kids in the car.

Can’t say enough good things!

My 2yo had yet to read this story, and the narration is so well done that he actively listened to and enjoyed the story. Total win. 100% recommend.

A wonderful bedtime story

the story follows a little mouse as he makes his way through the deep dark wood only to find his imaginary creature is really alive.

the unabridged version however does have some different words to the book. however they are quite minor and do not take away from the book

Superb

Excellent story and brilliant narrating. My 4 yr grandson and I listen to this book repeatedly every time we’re in the car. My grandson recites along with sheer delight.

Amazing reading!

Kids and I love this book so much. We read it so many times we know all lyrics! The voice here is so special. You feel you are in the story at the same time. Very good.

Poor free book

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

We love this story and so downloaded the free one but it misses the beginning and the end! Not impressed!
