A Gruffalo Kind of Christmas

GruffaloEver felt like everyone was out to eat you?  That’s exactly how the adorable little mouse in The Gruffalo felt.  But, he was one smart mouse.  He used his wit, and told all his predator’s that he is meeting a monster, a Gruffalo, which scares them all and they decide not to eat him.  Mouse becomes increasinly confident, and he thinks there is nothing that can touch him.  Then he rounds the corner and comes face-to-face with the terrible monster that he made up…

The Gruffalo DVD is based on the award winning book by Julia Donaldson.  I had not read the book before we received the DVD for review.  In fact, I hadn’t even heard of the book.  After watching The Gruffalo, I can certainly understand why the book is award winning.  It is quite possibly one of the cutest stories I have ever seen.

After watching the film, I picked up a copy of the book from our local library.  I was really surprised to see that the movie followed the book to the letter.

The animation of The Gruffalo is seamless and beautiful.  The colors are vibrant.  The story is captivating and timeless.  This is one of those stories that will long outlive the author that penned it.

Interestingly enough, the first time the kidlets watched it, Sister was afraid of the mouse.  She has long since outgrown her fear of the mouse and loves this DVD.  It is on her “go-to” list.  Anytime it’s her turn to pick, this is one of the three or four that she pulls out of the cabinet.

The Gruffalo DVD is available at local retailers nationwide,  at NCircle, and on Amazon.

If you are Christmas shopping, for your own child or someone else’s little one, I would definitely recommend The Gruffalo!  Make it a Gruffalo Kind of Christmas!
