A quick-thinking mouse manages to bluff his way out of being eaten by a series of creatures including the eponymous Gruffalo. The story has a predictable pattern with an enjoyable twist in the middle of the tale. The text is in rhyming couplets with a degree of repetition which will support the reader.
