    A mouse is taking a stroll through the deep, dark woods when along comes a hungry fox, then an owl, and then a snake. The mouse is good enough to eat, but smart enough to know this - so he invents...the gruffalo! As Mouse explains, the gruffalo is a creature with terrible claws, terrible tusks in its terrible jaws, knobbly knees and turned-out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of its nose. But Mouse has no worries. After all, there's no such thing as a gruffalo...is there?
