The Gruffalo tells the story of a mouse who meets a predatory Fox, Owl and Snake on his journey through the dark woods. In order to avoid becoming their tea, he describes a mythical monster named The Gruffalo to scare them away.
As the mouse continues his journey into the woods, he soon discovers that the creature he’s invented does actually exist and finds himself having to convince The Gruffalo that he is the scariest animal in the woods.
The Gruffalo has terrible tusks and claws. His knees are knobbly and he has a green wart on the end of his nose. He has orange eyes, a black tongue and purple spikes all over his back.
These are the official The Gruffalo licensed characters.
