We have had The Gruffalo animated, and now we have The Gruffalo's Child, and what a treat it is. When the young Gruffalo girl goes into the forest in search of the Big Bad Mouse she is in for a few adventures.

With great animation the woods and its creatures are brought to stunning life in a tale that little children will love, and dare I say it, adults as well. I sat mesmerised watching this and it is something that will keep the whole family engrossed in.

Ideal for all ages this is well worth getting if you have small children.

I watched last year's The Gruffalo with my young sons because I had been reading it to them for months. I was instantly both surprised, delighted and charmed by it's authentic take on the story, and by how they had so carefully and cleverly added some extra fun bits into it that probably only the parents would notice. And, happily, the same can be said for The Gruffalo's Child. The story itself is ever so slightly less captivating than The Gruffalo, but the animated version of The Gruffalo's Child easily redeems any lack in the storyline. As an adult, watching it with my wife and 3 young boys, I found myself laughing out loud, smiling and admiring the workmanship of the animators. This is a video that will get re-played many times over. Highly recommended, and an absolute must if you like The Gruffalo.

My grandchildren age 5 and 2 just love this film. I had recorded it from the tv at Christmas and purchased the DVD as soon as it was available. Julia Donaldson's books are a firm favourite for both of them and this dvd is wonderful. It sticks to the original story and brings it to life on screen. My 2 year old grandson loves the Gruffalo and we now have both The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child on dvd. I would highly recommend this DVD to have in your collection. Both my grandchildren love it and I really enjoy watching it with them as well.I did wonder once the DVD was in the house if they would want to view that rather than read the book. But I've found that that although they love to watch the film the book is still being read and enjoyed as much as ever. My 2 favourite Julia Donaldson books in their collection are Stick Man and also The Smartest Giant in Town. I hope there will eventually be animated versions of them !

It's a lovely short film version of one of my daughters favourite books. It's being played over and over! It is very short though, it would be as well to put the Gruffalo's child on the same DVD.

I bought this for my 2 year old granddaughter because she so enjoyed the Gruffalo. It was an immediate hit. She will watch it time after time with no diminished interest. It has also helped her vocabulary as well and she will often join in with the story. Totally and utterly worth every penny.

I bought this DVD for my little boy,as he already has the gruffalo on DVD and I thought he would love this!The DVD arrived quickly and my little boy was delighted with his little gift,to which he insisted on watching straight away.He loved it from the very beginning to the very end and asked for it on again straight after it had finished much to my dismay!it is a great DVD and I would recommend it to any parent who wishes to have a quiet half an hour,this will not disappoint.My little three year old boy has all the books and now the DVDs to accompany them,well worth the money for any active little mind!

This is the quintessential DVD of this century!!!! The story is FABULOUS, the characters are wonderful! There is lots to learn from well in this movie. A kid cult classic that also appeals to adults that still possess a wonderous child-like nature and and an eye for fine detail....... If you are having to read this review prior to purchasing I'm wondering where have you been hiding to not know about The Gruffalo. ..? Buy this as a gift for your children , then sit down together with them and ENJOY!!!

After waiting 3 weeks for this dvd to arrive by standard royal mail delivery, i contacted Amazon, who were only to happy to post another copy upgraded to guaranteed next day delivery, free of charge. It duly arrived in perfect time but still no sign of the original order. Was it worth the wait? You bet! In the few weeks since receiving it, i must have watched it 30 times with my ever more enthusiastic 2 year old. Absolutely no sign of him losing interest. Perfect entertainment for young and old.

Our whole family absolutely love this. The Gruffalo; both book and movie, have been a favourite for years and my 4½ years old knows it backwards. And this beautiful and spellbinding sequel does not disappoint. Our youngest 1½ can watch the Gruffalo's Child over and over again - it is pure magic :O) The movie is true to the book and it is wonderful to find a gem like this which has not been "americanised". Highly recommend it :O)
