Eva and I stumbled upon this book, the Gruffalo’s Child at our local library a few years ago. I thought it looked cute with this big fuzzy monster on the cover and wanted to share it with Eva. She wasn’t too thrilled at first but after reading it she fell in love with the book. Well, the book is now a movie and will be shown as part of KidToons in September. I also have a free ticket for you to use to take your child to see The Gruffalo’s Child.

Here is the Movie Trailer
One wild and windy night, the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warnings and bravely tiptoes out into the snow into the deep, dark wood in search of the “Big Bad Mouse.” Along the way, she meets Snake, Owl and Fox but no sign of the fabled Mouse. Described by her father as “terribly big” and “terribly bad,” the mouse proves to be terribly hard to find. Does he exist or doesn’t he? This beautifully animated film based on the best-selling children’s picture book by author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler, The Gruffalo’s Child is a companion film to the hugely successful, academy award nominated, The Gruffalo. Directed by Johannes Weiland & Uwe Heidschötter with an all star English cast that includes Helena Bonham Carter, Rob Brydon, Robbie Coltrane, James Corden, Shirley Henderson, John Hurt and Tom Wilkinson.
