first... I have not seen the Gruffalo.
Second... I read this on a bi-weekly basis with the kids. They are 6,4 & 2.
Third... I love to read and want the kids to love reading too. This is something we do together just me and the kids.
I was super excited when i found this and the kids were really exited when they realised what it was we where watching. It has been supremely presented as the actual book is not heavy on words. The narration was fantastically paced with the additional on charter interplay that was not actually in the book. The story flows well with tension on an entirely appropriate level for the kids. I appreciated the most (and it was a deal breaker for me to be honest) was the sticking to the rhyme and word play.
In short this is great... the kids loved it, i loved it and it was a wee bit special for the kids an i.
