" A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood. A fox saw the mouse and the mouse looked good." 


I have read this line from the award winning picture book "The Gruffalo" to my son many times. This classic tale written by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler brings us to the deep dark wood where a clever little mouse finds its way to survive being eaten by the forest's wildest creatures. The reader will enjoy how the smart mouse pulls a little bit of courage and wit along the way as he encounters the fox, owl and snake. Who would not be afraid of a creature who has "terrible tusks, and terrible claws, and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws"? Oh no, it's the Gruffalo!

Reading this story to my son is always a fun and entertaining experience for us. I try to change my voice for each character and reserve my scariest tone when it's time to say the gruffalo's lines. Even my little boy gets scared of the gruffalo!


It would be fun to see the story unfold before our very eyes and experience the songs, adventure and scary fun live! Let's grab this chance to introduce the magic of live theater to our children.
