Is the Gruffalo scary?

The Gruffalo is comic horror. But while echoing other tales and genres, the story stands alone. It features a unique and unsurpassed monster: what you imagine can kill you. It's bizarre to think he's only been around since 1999, so culturally embedded is he now.

Think about The Gruffalo. Before The Gruffalo's Child and James Corden's voice in the film version, the mouse wasn't gendered. If you take The Gruffalo book as a standalone, the mouse is consistently referred to as 'the mouse'. No gender was given until The Gruffalo's Child.
