[The Gruffalo](https://library.britishcouncil.org.in/catalog/the-doric-gruffalo-9781785300042/560091), by Julia Donaldson

A quick-witted little mouse journeying through dark woodland encounters all sorts of creatures, including the infamous Gruffalo. Despite the Gruffalo’s scary reputation, the mouse soon finds that he isn’t such a monster after all! The tale encourages us to face our fears and realise that even the most petrifying of creatures might not be as terrible as first we thought. Now translated into over fifty languages and made into both a film and a play the Gruffalo is surely a modern classic!
