The Gruffalo is based on a best selling children’s book. A magical tale of a mouse who takes a stroll through the woods and encounters three predators who all wish to eat him. Using his wits the mouse figures out ways to survive. he tells his predators that he is meeting a monster. This scares each of them off. But what happens when the mouse comes face to face with this monster from his imagination?
Our Thoughts: Ever since I was a child I’ve loved Fables. Although not so much a fable it still offers a survival tactic that could delights viewers. Story’s that have a life lesson to teach are some of the best pieces of art. The story is told by a mama squirrel to her two babies. She describes the adventures of a mouse walking through the woods to a acorn tree. The mouse encounters a fox, an owl and a snake who all want to eat him. Using the scariest parts of his predators to describe a creature he’s meeting right where they are standing. Fearful of being eaten them selves they scurry off and hide. When the mouse comes up on the Graffalo he describes himself as being the scariest creature in the woods. To prove his theory he has the Graffalo follow him back through the forrest walking closly behind. You can just imagine what happens next. Delightfully animated story told through motion picture. I love the almost true to live 3D animation. (looked fabulous on my lap top). My children and I enjoyed watching this short film together. It’s complete with the making of the Graffalo features as well.
