This book tells the tale of a scary Gruffalo,
is he real, is he pretend, nobody knows.
A sly little mouse describes him so true,
other animals listen intently, their ears fixed like glue.
Through the deep dark woods does little mouse go,
announcing his meeting with the fierce gruffalo.
His aim is to put off predators leering in the woods,
who all want to eat little mouse, they surely would.
A fox comes along, thinking of his meal for the day,
little mouse is quick to react, as he starts to say,
"Those terrible tusks, and terrible toes,
with terrible teeth in his terrible jaws.
He has knobbly knees and turn out toes,
and a poisonous wart at the end of his nose.
His eyes are orange, his tongue is black,
he has purple prickles all over his back!"
Little mouse uses his tricks to leer off owl and snake,
proud of himself for thinking he’s invented a fake!
Through the woods little mouse continues to go,
unaware that round the corner stands the big Grufallo!
As little mouse sees him, heartbeats he can feel,
The Grufallo isn’t pretend, he is in fact real!
Little mouse continues his tricks and uses the beast,
to scare off the animals who wanted him for their feast.
Little mouse sat alone, amazed at his luck,
as he nibbles into a brown, delicious sweet nut.
