Hiya monkey fans today we are writing a nice little poem about our friend mr Gruffalo. He’s very nice and we thought we would pop over for tea. We’ve invited him for sausages and mash tomorrow so that’ll be nice. I thought he ate owl and snake but apparently that mouse was just having a laugh. We’ve invited mouse and everyone over too tomorrow for the party to end Children’s book week!
Monkey’s gone out and bought – Now that’s what I call a monkey tune volume 3 especially for all the bopping we are going to do!
A monkey was a swinging through the deep dark wood.
A swinging and a flying like a little monkey should
He’s off to meet up with his Gruffalo friend
but can’t find the way and gets lost in the end
Dog dog can you show me the Gruffalo den–
I can’t seem to find it. I’m back here again”
Oh now don’t you worry, I’ve been there before
Come now follow me and i’ll show you his door
When they got to the door, it was then that they found
A lovely warm fire with some food on the ground
There was also a message which monkey then read
Dear monkey it started, I hope you want fed
I know that some people think that I eat wolf and fox
But I wish to surprise you so look in this box
Inside I have marshmallows, toast and a tin
which is full of chocolates so please tuck right in!
I’m just in the forest gathering wood
So please take a seat and then if you could
Please melt the marshmallows
and heat up the toast
but don’t eat the chocolates
I love those the most
I’ll be back in a minute, I’m just getting cheese
but I’m a bit slow, with my knobbly knees
My turned out toes mean I don’ t walk so fast
in a race in the forest I always come last
But please take a seat near the fire and food
I would like to invite you to taste what is good
I promise not to eat you, I’m lovely you’ll see
Just please now remember, you’re not to eat me!
