“A mouse took a stroll
through the deep dark wood,
A fox saw the mouse
and the mouse looked good.”
The Gruffalo follows a resourceful mouse on his walk through a deep, dark wood. The mouse encounters animals along the way and cleverly comes up with a plan to avoid being eaten.
This book is a favourite in our house for my husband, children and I. Beautifully written and illustrated, we read it over and over again. We have read it so many times now that our children can recite it by heart.
Now that my children don’t need the book read to them, I created a moving story book so they can retell the story to each other. It's a great project to make for smaller children or for older children to try themselves.
