Oh NO…It’s a GRUFFALO!
The Gruffalo has got to be the most beaten up book on my kids bookshelf.
Translated: The most read book on my kids bookshelf.
And not only because my kids love it, but because every time they ask me to pick a book to read to them, it’s the book I go for too. (Yes, it’s that hypnotic!)
This best-selling children’s book was introduced August 16th on DVD and really had a lot to live up to.
If you’ve read the charming rhymes in The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson, and seen the amazing artwork by Axel Scheffler, you’ll understand what I mean.
The story of an adorable little mouse out-witting three predators who want to eat him, coupled with a monster from his imagination that comes to life, definitely calls for some fun.
Check the trailer HERE.
The Academy Award nominated film was narrated by Helena Bonham Carter (from Harry Potter), and features voices of an all-star cast.
You really get to see the characters develop, and see more of their personalities. The visuals are stunning, and you can tell that they worked really, really hard to make sure that the animated version lived up to the magic of the original book.
Two thumbs way up!
The Gruffalo is going to be cast as a truely timeless children’s classic.
My kids are going to watch this DVD over and over, until it’s no longer playable.
That’s just a fact.
