Gruffalo theme and key objectives.

The Gruffalo - Read by Alan Mandel

For my nephew Yari on his 2nd birthday. The Gruffalo is a modern classic written by the incomparable Julia Donaldson and beautifully illustrated by Axel Scheffler. It tells the story of a mouse who is threatened in turn by a fox, an owl and a snake, but scares them all off by claiming he is waiting for his monstrous friend the Gruffalo.
