The Gruffalo (giveaway)

The Gruffalo is a best-selling children’s book that has been turned into an Academy Award nominated animated movie! 

The Gruffalo is a magical tale of a mouse who takes a stroll through the woods.  Encountering three predators who all wish to eat him, the adorable and confident mouse has to use his wits to survive.  He tells his predators that he is meeting a monster, which scares each of them, but what will mouse do when comes face to face with the terrible product of his imagination?”

Narrated by Helena Bonham Carter, it features many other voices that you’re sure to recognize, such as Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid from the Harry Potter movies) as the Gruffalo and Tom Wilkinson (Joe Kenndey Sr on the recent miniseries The Kennedys) as Fox.

Ashlyn just loves this movie.  We’ve had it on when we’ve had our friends over, and all of the adults have commented on how beautiful the animation style is.  It’s also a very quiet movie, which is such a refreshing change to some of the programs Ashlyn watches!  At 40 minutes long, it’s the perfect length for her attention span.

The Gruffalo is available on DVD August 16 at your local retailer, or at NCircle Entertainment for a suggested retail price of $9.99.
