The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson. When Mouse goes walking in the Deep Dark Woods, he runs into Fox, Owl, and Snake... and they all want to eat him! Clever Mouse scares them off by warning them about the terrible Grufflalo, a monster who has "terrible tusks, and terrible claws, and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws." When they hear that a Gruffalo’s favorite foods are “roasted fox,” “owl ice cream,” and “scrambled snake,” the predators scamper away. Mouse laughs at their foolishness: "Silly old snake! Doesn't he know? There's no such thing as a Gruffalo!"...Or is there? How will Mouse save himself when a Gruffalo really does appear, complete with purple spikes, a warty nose , and an appetite for mouse on bread?
