Listen to the sequel, Gruffalo's Child.

This is a clever story about a clever little mouse that my kids (3 and 5) love. I don't think the 3-yeard old would get it (without having seen the book) if she hadn't seen an animated version prior, but she'd probably still stay tuned the entire time because of the performance. The narrator does different voices for all of the animals- super fun!
I recommend this book.
the narrator's speed and delivery
My children love this story and the videos recently made , which are narrated by Helena Bonham Carter. I wish this story was narrated as in the movie. It seemed so rushed and the story is over before you know it. I realize it is not a very long book but I believe it could've been done better.
Julia Donaldson write great children's books and this one is one of her best!
I love to read it to my kids and to myself, I guess I still a child deep down. A mouse with wit faces and handles different animals in the woods and faces a monster with great wisdom. I loved it.
Yes. My five-year-old asks that we listen to it nearly every night.
The little mouse is so clever.
Nicely read. Pleasant to listen to.
The audio book is best if you are already familiar with the story or the short-film. Not a lot of descripiton in the narration, itself. Buy the book, supplement with the audio.
The kids and I love this story. Simply fantastic. I read it a bit differently and like to accent the rhythm and rhyme to make it fun for the kids. This reading is a bit more static. Overall still very good.
