Lots of animals ask him to have lunch with them but the mouse says he can't because he is having lunch with a gruffalo. Of course the mouse doesn't even know that the gruffalo really exists. So he walks in the forest and he sees a creature with purple prickles all down his back, a big green wart on his nose, knobbly knees...
The mouse says to the gruffalo something like "Everyone is scared of me, just wait and see."
Henry and Odin just love this book and ask me to read it all the time. I know there is another book called The Gruffalo's Child but we haven't got that. I think it would be a good idea to get it because the boys don't know about it and once they do... they will be excited!!
The Gruffalo is a brilliant book, especially for the really little ones.
