The Gruffalo

The best-selling children's picture book, written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, is brought to life in this beautifully animated adaptation. This classic tale follows a mouse who, while wandering in the woods, encounters three predators who all wish to eat him - a fox, an owl and a snake. The plucky mouse scares them away by creating an imaginary monster who turns out to be only too real! The film's all-star voice cast includes Helena Bonham Carter, Rob Brydon, John Hurt, Tom Wilkinson and Robbie Coltrane as The Gruffalo.
