When Mouse takes a stroll through the woods, he meets a fox, an owl, and a snake who all want to eat him! So Mouse invents a gruffalo, a monster with "terrible tusks and terrible claws, terrible teeth, and terrible… jaws." But will Mouse's frightful description be enough to scare off his foes? After all, there's no such thing as a gruffalo... is there? Grades K-3. 1999.
