ProA Brilliant Adaptation

ConsNone

Introduction:- The Gruffalo first appeared in a written format during 2009 and was first screened as a film adaptation for the first time on Christmas Day that very same year. It wasn’t however until seeing the DVD for sale in late 2012 that I actually realised there was a film version of this...

As I'm sure many people did, we sat down and watched this as a family on a Christmas Day that was rather disappointing in terms of TV magic. It takes Julia Donaldson's wonderful tale and adapts it for TV brilliantly, incorporating some famous voices and a relaxed and patient attitude with the...

The Gruffalo The story of the Gruffalo first saw light in book form by author Julia Donaldson. I love the whole range of children's stories by Julia. Her stories are brilliant and are so much different to your regular children's books. The Gruffalo is a story of a mouse who is walking through the...

“MOUSE!”

Procast, story, everything!

ConsNothing!

*FILM ONLY REVIEW* I'm a huge fan of Julia Donaldson's The Gruffalo books. It's a delightful children's range that seems to grow and grow every time I check out the designated 'Gruffalo' areas on book shops, and there's no surprise either. One of my favourite Gruffalo things is the film which...

ProWitty story, lovely animation

Consnone

The Gruffalo is an animation based on a children's book of the same name that is written by Julia Donaldson. It is a book that I'd seen in the shops and also seen quite a lot of merchandise for, but not one that I'd read, so I wasn't familiar with the story. When I noticed the BBC were screening...

ProGreat story, characters

ConsNone

See the creature with terrible teeth and turned out toes and a purple wart at the end of his nose brought to life in this wonderful animated version of Julia Donaldsons classic story. The Gruffalo is one of our favourite books and pretty much a staple every night at bedtime. I like to read it...

ConsWish it was longer

The Gruffalo is a Children's book by Julia Donaldson, first published in 1999, and I think it's fair to say has already achieved the 'classic' status. I first read the book when I was really far too old, I have no children or younger brothers and sisters either so I can't use those as an excuse...
