Reviews

1: THE ENORMOUS CROCODILE - When the Enormous Crocodile boasts that he is going to eat a child for his lunch, the other jungle animals decide to foil his dastardly plot. Children of all ages will delight in the exploits of Humpy Rumpy - the hippopotamus, Muggle Wump - the monkey and the amazing antics of the Roly-Poly bird. 2: REVOLTING RHYMES - Six of the best-loved nursery rhymes retold, with some extremely amusing twists, by the master of the comic and blood-curdling, Roald Dahl. 3: DIRTY BEASTS - Roald Dahl, that master of wicked humour, has created a ghastly menagerie of dirty beasts - all doing the most extraordinary and unmentionable things, in irreverent and absurdly comic verse. Including Crocky-Wock, the crocodile, who every Saturday has six young children for his lunch and how Miss Milky Daisy, the cow, punished a very rude man. 4: THE MAGIC FINGER - "When the Magic Finger is upon you extraordinary things begin to happen...." and when the Magic Finger is put upon the Gregg family for shooting some ducks, only the inventive imagination of Roald Dahl could have devised the events which take place!

3.0 out of 5 stars revolting rhymes etc 12 Oct 2010
The production isn't slick, but the value is in Roald Dahl's creation and the delivery which appeals to everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roald Dahl DVD 12 Aug 2011
We bought this as an end of term treat for our Year 2 classes(6&7 year olds) as we had been studying the works of Roald Dahl, concentrating on the Magic Finger. The children all loved it. It was a cartoon/drawing with voiced story which was the book word for word.
Would recommend

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 10 July 2011
Bought this as my class are studying The Magic Finger in their Literacy sessions, and after being caught between wondering whether the film is charming in it's old-fashioned simplicity or terribly dated looking, I had to put myself in the shoes of a 7 year old to say this DVD is terribly dated. The images are a series of cartoon drawings, albeit nice drawings, and when children are used to the sophisticated animated action they get now, this doesn't compare. It's effectively a read through of the story, accompanied by a series of images, which wouldn't bring the story to life any better than a teacher reading through the story (and the voice on the DVD trills a bit after a while). Disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Four Enchanting Roald Dahl Stories 6 April 2014

I bought this for my two nephews who were reading Roald Dahl stories at their primary school. I thought that it might help foster an interest in his stories and help to enhance stories that they had read at school. It certainly did the trick as they love it and have watched it many times over.
