Description

The Gruffalo is an English original, written by Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Axel Scheffler.  The book has sold over 10.5 million copies, and has won several prizes for children's literature. Gruffalo was based on a Chinese folktale, The Fox and The Tiger, where the fox "borrowed" the terror of the tiger (the story behind 成语 - 狐假虎威). This is the Chinese translated version. 

The Story

The protagonist of The Gruffalo is a mouse - a very witty one. 

On his way, the mouse encounters several dangerous animals (a fox, an owl and a snake). Each of these animals, clearly intending to eat the mouse, invites him back to their home for a meal. The clever mouse declines each offer. To dissuade further advances, he tells each animal that he has plans to dine with his friend, a gruffalo, a monster, which is a hybrid between a bear and a buffalo, whose favourite food happens to be the relevant animal, and describes the features of the gruffalo. Frightened that the gruffalo might eat it, each animal flees. Knowing the gruffalo to be fictional, the mouse gloats thus:

Silly old fox/owl/snake, doesn't he know?

there's no such thing as a gruffalo!

After getting rid of the last animal, the mouse is shocked to encounter a real gruffalo – with all the frightening features the mouse thought that he was inventing. The gruffalo threatens to eat the mouse, but again the mouse is cunning: he tells the gruffalo that he, the mouse, is the scariest animal in the forest. Laughing, the gruffalo agrees to follow the mouse as he demonstrates how feared he is. The two walk through the forest, encountering in turn the animals that had earlier menaced the mouse. Each is terrified by the sight of the pair and runs off – and each time the gruffalo becomes more impressed with the mouse's apparent toughness. Exploiting this, the mouse threatens to eat the gruffalo, which flees.

This book is available in soft cover, in simplified chinese with no hanyu pinyin. For reading to a child, this book may suit children of 4 years and above. For self read, we would recommend this book for children above 7.

“一只小老鼠,叽布叽布,在密林深处溜达。一只狐狸看到他,馋得口水直滴答……”请你跟着小老鼠,走进这茂密的森林。看看这只聪明机灵的小老鼠,碰到了不怀好意的狐狸、猫头鹰、蛇,还有那大怪物咕噜牛,他是怎么样一一对付…… 
打开封面封底,这一幅图就是一个故事——怪物一般的咕噜牛对上瘦小而灵巧的老鼠,你能看出他们彼此的关系吗?仔细看,主要角色——老鼠出现在左下方,而和他有冲突的角色——咕噜牛则出现在右上方,这是配合由左往右的阅读习惯。再注意他们的眼神,咕噜牛的眼睛发红、目光直射向他的猎物,小老鼠却是悠然自得、小眼珠滴溜溜地转,彷佛在打什么鬼主意,暗示着这是一个小老鼠对咕噜牛,以智巧取胜的故事。 翻开扉页,圆形的背景映衬出主角的故事。机灵的小老鼠像在邀请图画外的我们,一起进入这个故事。
