In our new column we tell you about one children's book, which is worth reading for both adults and children. This time we chose the book of the English writer Julia Donaldson. Gruffalo is a story in verses about the adventures of a little mouse.
The little mouse goes to the forest to look for nuts, and on its way to the forest, he meets Fox, Owl and Snake, who want to eat him. The mouse manages to frighten the animals with the story about a terrible beast named Gruffalo with huge teeth, sharp claws and a poisonous wart on his nose. The mouse laughs at the stupid animals who believed the story, but soon the fictional monster becomes real. The mouse meets a forest beast who is the one from his imagination.
The book has gained incredible popularity all over the world, has been translated into many languages and has become one of the best-selling children's books in history.
