I received The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child in exchange for this post; however, all opinions are 100% my own.
My son and I love watching movies together. We’re always on the search for movies we’ll both enjoy, which is why I was so excited to get The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child. My son and I immensely enjoyed watching both of these movies.
I love the use of imagination in these movies. In the movie, the mouse invents a monster that is sure to make anyone afraid. When this mouse happens upon this monster that comes straight from his imagination, my son and I couldn’t wait to see what he would do. After watching this movie, I challenged my son to come up with his own Gruffalo from his imagination.
The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child are both full of adventures. The first movie shows the adventures of the mouse, while the second movie shows the adventures of the Gruffalo’s child as she tries to find the mouse. Both stories will keep you on the edge of your seat!
Overall, my son and I loved watching both of these movies. We were able to spend some time together on the couch cuddling as we watched to see what happened. We also loved playing afterwords, imagining what would happen if we happened upon our own Gruffalo.
Both of these films are based on beloved children’s books written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, and feature an all-star cast of voices. Some of the featured voice talent in both films includes Helena Bonham Carter (Harry Potter), Robbie Coltrane (Harry Potter), James Corden (The Late Late Show with James Corden), John Hurt (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), and Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins).

This enchanting tale tells the story of a mouse who walks through the woods in search of a nut. Along the way, he encounters a hungry fox, owl, and snake who all think the mouse looks good to eat! Forced to rely on his wits for survival, Mouse invents an imaginary monster with frightening features to scare them away, but what happens when he comes face-to-face with his own creation?

About The Gruffalo’s Child
One snowy night, the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warning and bravely tiptoes out of their cave into the deep dark wood in search of the Big Bad Mouse. On her journey, she meets Snake, Owl, and Fox but no sign of the fabled Mouse. He doesn’t really exist…or does he?
