The Gruffalo's Child (U)
Friday 17 February 2012
"Aha! Oho! Marks in the snow! Whose are these claw marks? Where do they go?"
A ridiculously starry cast – including Helena Bonham Carter (a mummy squirrel), John Hurt (Owl), Tom Wilkinson (Fox), James Corden (Mouse) and Robbie Coltrane (the Gruffalo) – voice this beautifully animated adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's charming children's tale of the Gruffalo's Child (Shirley Henderson), who embarks on a bold night-time adventure to track down the "big bad mouse".
Like all of Donaldson and Scheffler's fables, The Gruffalo's Child is full of warmth, humanity and ingenious rhythms and repetitions.
