Big book. Thick,medium glossy pages. Suitable to endure the handling of a 4-5 yrs. Lovely colorful pictures to understand the story and attract them.
2. About 26 pages long, meaningfull story with great philosophy. More pictures, less word- perfect for a budding little reader .

5.0 out of 5 stars Un acierto
Reviewed in Spain on 29 December 2017
En mi caso adquirí la versión de libro de tapa blanda más el CD de audio. Prestar atención al tipo de encuadernación que compráis, existe mucha diferencia entre ellos. En el caso del de tapa blanda tampoco os esperéis nada maravilloso en su encuadernación....lo importante es la historia, los dibujos, las rimas...

El libro es un clásico, para mi un indispensable que no puede faltar en cualquier casa dónde exista un niño pequeño. Creo que a partir de dos años o dos años y medios se puede empezar con la lectura de este ejemplar, aunque quizá hasta los cinco años los niños no entiendan la picardía del ratón y como consiguió engañar a todos.

El protagonista de El Gruffalo es un ratón. La historia de la caminata del ratón a través del bosque se desarrolla en dos fases, en tanto, el ratón utiliza la astucia para evadir el peligro.
El ratón va a dar un paseo en el bosque y en su camino se encuentra con varios animales peligrosos (un zorro, un búho y una serpiente). Cada uno de estos animales, es evidente la intención de comer el ratón, le invita a regresar a su casa para una comida. El ratón astuto declina cada oferta. Para disuadir a los nuevos avances, le dice a cada animal que se va a cenar con su amigo, un Gruffalo, cuya comida favorita pasa a ser el animal en cuestión. El ratón se describen las características extrañas de la anatomía de lo monstruoso de Gruffalo. Miedo de que la Gruffalo puede comer ellos, cada uno huye de los animales. El ratón se regodea en sí mismo, sabe que el Gruffalo es un monstruo de ficción:
Tonto viejo zorro / lechuza / serpiente, no lo sabe? no hay tal cosa como un Gruffalo!
Después de que ha visto fuera el último animal, sin embargo, el ratón se sorprende al encontrarse con un Gruffalo real, oso y horribles y con todas las características miedo el ratón pensó que estaba inventando. Fiel a su reputación, la Gruffalo amenaza para comer el ratón, pero de nuevo el ratón es astuto. Él le dice a la Gruffalo que él, el ratón, es el más temible de los animales en el bosque. Riendo, el Gruffalo se compromete a seguir el ratón como demuestra cómo todo el mundo le tiene miedo. La caminata de dos por el bosque, encontrando a su vez, los animales que habían amenazado anteriormente con el ratón. Cada uno está aterrorizado por la visión de la pareja y se va, y cada vez que el Gruffalo se vuelve más impresionado con la dureza aparente del ratón. La explotación de este, el ratón amenaza con comer la Gruffalo, que se huye.
La historia está basada en un cuento popular chino tradicional de un zorro que toma prestado el terror de un tigre. Donaldson era incapaz de pensar en rimas para “tigre” para inventar una para “conocer” en su lugar.

A mi las imágenes del cuento me encantan, los colores, las expresiones de los animales, el paisaje....creo que está muy cuidado.

Respecto al CD de audio incluye la historia leída completa, acompañada de los ruidos de los animales, el bosque etc. Esto ayuda mucho sobretodo si nuestro nivel de inglés no es tan alto como quisiéramos. Después de la historia está la canción del Gruffalo que para los niños será un éxito asegurado.

Lo volvería a comprar sin duda.

Arrived in perfect condition. Never seen this in a board book version before, I absolutely love it. Immediately read it to my baby who had no clue what I was saying but she smiled the whole way through. Wonderful addition to her growing bookshelf.
