I wasn't sure if the Gruffalo DVD would still be interesting for my son because he had moved on to other stories by the time he had turned four (the book was a top favourite when he had just turned three). I ordered it anyway (because I wanted to see it!).
Well what can I say, it is a mega hit. My four-year old boy absolutely loves it and will ask to see it three times in a row!
The graphics are superb. The characters look exactly like Axel Scheffler's drawings for the book. The rhyming text is all there, word for word. The only things they have added are an introduction / ending to have a narrator (a squirrel mother) and some added action/suspense - the mouse drifting down the river on a log for the encounter with the owl scene; the mouse actually being taken to the owl's treetop house; the fox, owl and snake all meeting and discussing the Gruffalo...
I mean, they had to beef up the story somehow - and they have managed to stretch it into a 25-minute film without losing any of the original book's charm.
There's only this story on the DVD so it's really short and I expect they will turn the other stories into animated films as well...
I recommend this to anyone who knows and loves The Gruffalo book.
