Q: What is the book about?

A: The Gruffalo. The fox was grumpy and asked the mouse to go in his underground house. The mouse said no! He was going to see the Gruffalo! Oh no there’s a scary Gruffalo. There’s pictures of him. There’s an owl who wants to eat the mouse. Oh dear said the owl. A snake slid out from his underground log house. The mouse said he was having a feast with the Gruffalo. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear said the snake. It’s a Gruffalo. Oh no! The Gruffalo came from his cave. He’s too scary to me! He has knobbly knees and terrible claws and purple prickles all over his back! Then he was scary.
