Lots of the other reviews here, whilst glowing, are for other Wallace and Gromit titles. If anything I would say this is even better. 20 years since the release of 'A Grand Day Out', this graphic novel has been created with high production values. The illustrations are atmospheric and capture the feel of the animation, and the book itself is beautiful to look at. It has a foreword from Nick Park too - a real seal of approval from the man himself! Great stuff, I can't wait for the rest in the series.

Personally, I really enjoyed this book. At first i thought it would be a little sad, but then i couldn't put it down! Both Wallace and Gromit were really fun and the way it was all laid out was great! I would recommend it to all my friends!

EL LIBRO ES DE MUY BUENA CALIDAD, LOS DIBUJOS SON ESTUPENDOS, EL PAPEL TIENE TEXTURA, LA NOVELA GRAFICA SE SIGUE SIN NINGUNA DIFICULTAD POR LOS ÑINOS QUE TODAVIA NO LEEN, MI HIJO DESDE QUE SE LO REGALE LO LLEVA CON EL A MUCHOS SITIOS Y SE ENTRETIENE EL TIEMPO SIN FIN VIENDO LOS DIBUJOS Y SIGUIENDO LA HISTORIA, LO RECOMIENDO MUCHO.

By tvtv3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Wallace and Gromit are huge in the U.K. and though they will never be as big in the U.S., the duo has slowly gained a loyal following. Wallace and Gromit are the stars of a series of British claymation shorts and thirty-minute movies. Wallace is an inventor who wears a lot of Mister Roger-type sweaters (usually in green). Gromit is Wallace's dog and though Wallace is smart, Gromit is probably the more intelligent and is definitely the more clear-headed, logical, and reasoning of the duo. Oh, and they both love cheese.

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.
