The localization is pretty good, too. It's not a straight word-for-word translation -- it's more like the whole story was rewritten: it's all rhyming poetry, and uses different (more eastern) words for foods, e.g. kabab. The pages read right-to-left like they should and the images have been flipped to make it appear correct. Great quality job over all. It sounds pretty cute when read aloud. From a reading level perspective, it is a bit harder than some children's books, but not overly difficult (6-10 lines of poetry per page). Some some vowel markings are present on harder words.
I found the story to be very cute and would definitely read to kids. It shows that being clever can get you quite far. Just watch out for that غرفول in the forest!
Both of the Gruffalo books are nicely illustrated with fun and engaging stories for him. Each page has a drawing that helps to paint the picture of what is being read. The Gruffalo is a new character for him that has helped to present a monster to him in a non-scary manner.
If you a looking for new reading material for your little one, or to introduce them to monsters that aren't scary, then this is a good purchase.
