Editorial Reviews

*National Parenting Publication Award (NAPPA): Gold Winner 2012* 2011 Academy Award Nominee for Best Short Film! An animated film based on the classic children's picture book, The Gruffalo tells the magical tale of a mouse who takes a walk though the woods in search of a nut. Encountering three animals who all wish to eat him - a fox, an owl and a snake - the plucky mouse has to use his wits to survive. He announces that he is meeting a monster with terrible features, a 'Gruffalo', and the three animals are each panicked into running away. Mouse is now increasingly confident; there is nothing that can touch him..... or so he thinks. That is, until he rounds a corner and comes face-to-face with the terrible creature of his imagination: the Gruffalo himself! Beautifully animated and appropriate for children of all ages. Features the voices of Helena Bonham Carter, James Corden, John Hurt, Tom Wilkinson, Robbie Coltrane, Rob Brydon

Customer Reviews

My kids love this movie.

I enjoy watching this DVD just as much as my daughter, and now when we read the book at bedtime, I even find myself acting out the characters.
Sylvia Battaglia
It is very faithful to the story and the animation takes it's cue directly from the illustrations in the book.

A truely beautiful short film based on the childrens book, "The Gruffalo". It played on cable during the Christmas holiday 2010 and we were able to DVR it. My children (boy aged 5 and girl aged 3) ask to watch it about once a week, especially if we read the story at bedtime. I personally like to watch it, and most of their shows I cant stand. The movie uses only the words from the book, and does an excellent job retelling it. It shows the circle of life, where every creature in the "deep dark wood" is being eaten by something else; mouse sees all this and comes up with a plan to escape the same fate. An excellent story, we just love it. I cant wait for the DVD to come out - Im sick of fast forwarding past all the commercials.

The Gruffalo tells the whimsical story of a little mouse who goes on a stroll in the woods. He comes across several other creatures - predators who all think the little mouse looks quite tasty! The witty mouse must do his best to keep from being eaten! He invents a story about a terrible monster, The Gruffalo, who will of course devour all the predators. Our little hero is pretty pleased with himself when his enemies run away - but what will become of him when the creature of his imagination turns out to be not quite so imaginary after all?

I highly recommend it! Featuring voice talents such as Helena Bonham Carter and Robbie Coltrane, the tale has a lyrical feel that takes you along on the little mouse's journey. The animation is beautiful, the story is sweet and overall it may become a family favorite. Hubby and I enjoyed watching the behind-the-scenes feature - it was fascinating to see how the animation team brought everything together.

I echo the previous reviewer. We DVR'd The Gruffalo and I am very excited to not have to fast forward holiday commercials. That said, my kids (ages 2 and 6) love to watch this and have watched it on average of once a week for 7 months now. Unlike other kids' programming, I don't mind having it on in the background and enjoy watching it from time to time. It is a very sweet little tale with nicely done animation, music, and calming voices. There is also much you can talk about with both very young and older children. I highly recommend this one - appropriate for all ages and will not annoy the adults in the room.

For people who love beautiful animations, lovely music and a nice story....not stupid jokes or characters running into each other with loud crashes. Definitely for fans of Brambly Hedge, Kipper and Percy the Park Keeper.

The british always know how to put out an enjoyable peaceful animation.

This film was really cute and my boys were totally captivated as we all sat down and enjoyed the film together on a relaxing Sunday afternoon. The cartoon work is really beautiful throughout the film and it was just really such an enjoyable story to watch it even held on to my attention really well!

The Gruffalo has seen a lot of use in our house. A cute and clever kid's book. This movie competently captures the mood of the book. The animation matches the original art very closely, and it's got the lines from the original book (plus a few more).

This is not a long feature at all, but it really shouldn't be (don't get me started on Where The Wild Things Are movie).

I had no idea when I received this DVD that it was also a best-selling children's book. After watching it I have NO trouble seeing why. This story is so adorable!
And my kids just LOVE it! Any time a visitor comes over my daughter wants to show them the movie..lol It's 40 minutes long and also has bonus content.
Besides the story I love the music. It is really beautiful! A rare thing in children's dvd's.

This dvd is worth its weight in gold for how entertained it keeps my three-year-old son. He just loves " The Gruffalo," and as a mom who gets tired of the silly obnoxiousness that are part of so many kids television shows, I love it too. This is just a fun, feel good story. The characters are endearing. My son loves the mouse, but even the Gruffalo himself has his charms. The animation is sophisticated and fun and the music is beautiful. Highly recommend!
