An ancient twist on the award-winning story of The Gruffalo, in which a clever little mouse outwits the creatures of the deep dark wood, is the perfect picture book, loved by children and adults the world over.

This Latin edition of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's beloved tale is set in forty-six elegiac couplets, the translation drawing on the language and style of the classical poets to brilliantly capture the rhythm and mischievous spirit of the original story.
