The Story is a great one

Shame about the characters voices it is a great story as is the rest of the Julia Donaldson books and this is no exception but I'm not a fan of the voices of the character shame that they couldn't have the actors from the tv films.

My 2 year old loved it

This helped my 2 year old relax and fall asleep easier. She loves watching the gruffalo and trying to tell me about the big bad mouse with whiskers tougher than wire

Poor value as only choice during free trial

I regret choosing this title as my free trial book because it is so very short. The story is lovely and the rendering is great but it is far too short to evaluate the service. My fault entirely I know, but i regret my bad decision.

Wonderful!

Stopped a four year old's epic tantrum in it's tracks! Made for a perfect tantum-free car journey.

Excellent !!!

Any additional comments?

Great for car journeys, a story that my daughter knows (and loves) that isn't too painful to listen to (unlike Peppa Pig :-)).

Well read by Imelda Staunton, nice work getting into the characters. My daughter loves listening to this and following it through the book - just like reading all by herself ! The story is lovely but not so sure about the song at the end, though I'm sure the more it's listened to the easier it would be to sing-a-long

Would you consider the audio edition of The Gruffalo's Child to be better than the print version?

No

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Gruffalo's Child?

The end

What about Imelda Staunton’s performance did you like?

Yes good. Needs pages or visual aids to keep child interested if being looked at

Children love this

Imelda Staunton brings this brilliant story to life. My 2 year old loves this story as much as my 5 year old.
