The Gruffalo: Julia Donaldson - Book 10, 2009

The Gruffalo: Julia Donaldson
Topic: Kids/humour
Rating: 10/10
Comments: I don't normally count picture books on my 'read' list but one that is so funny and well written that I go out and buy it even though I don't have kids is a rare thing.  A wily mouse evades the attention of various predators by telling them he is going to have a meal with the (fictional) gruffalo.  Then he meets the monster of his creation.  Wonderfully written with beautiful metre and rhyme.
