Americans are probably most familiar with the Wallace and Gromit short, THE WRONG TROUSERS. THE WRONG TROUSERS won an Academy Award and augmented the fan base of Wallace and Gromit fans in the U.S. Though THE WRONG TROUSERS is what the pair is best known in, they starred in a previous short film entitled A GRAND DAY OUT. This is the graphic novel adaptation of that short film.
In A GRAND DAY OUT, Wallace and Gromit discover they don't have any cheese. The pair is in need of holiday and sets off for a place that is literally made of cheese: the moon. Once there they run into a mechanical machine that just wants to ski.
As graphic novels go, A GRAND DAY OUT is not that great. There isn't any amazing reading here and though the graphics are intriguing, they aren't original and most look like shots taken from the film. Nevertheless, this is Wallace and Gromit and the story of A GRAND DAY OUT originated in the genius mind of Nick Park. Therefore, the story content alone makes it better than the average graphic novel fair.
