Description

Julia Donaldson's trademark rhyming text and Axel Scheffler's brilliant, characterful illustrations create this funny and adorable sequel to The Gruffalo.

One night, the Gruffalo’s child wanders into the woods to search for the Big Bad Mouse. But instead, she comes upon a small mouse in the woods . . . and decides to eat him! But wait, what is that? A shadow of a very large, scary creature falls on the ground. Could it be the Big Bad Mouse after all?
