Everyone knows the story of The Gruffalo? When Mouse takes a stroll through the woods, he meets a fox, an owl, and a snake who all want to eat him! So Mouse invents a gruffalo, a monster with “terrible tusks and terrible claws, terrible teeth, and terrible jaws.” But will Mouse’s frightful description be enough to scare off his foes? After all, there’s no such thing as a gruffalo . . . is there? A delightful rhyming read-aloud book, perfect for preschoolers.
Here we have a version translated into Guernesiais (Guernsey French) by Yan Marquis with author Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. This book is a delightful way to keep the language alive and enjoy such a wonderfully illustrated book. It is ideal for reading to children or practising the language yourself. There is a video now available on the internet to help with your pronunciation too.
