We are lucky enough to have The Gruffalo visiting our tree again! And with him he’s brought The Gruffalo’s Child and Room on the Broom! These three wonderful films are based on the award-winning books by Julia Donaldson and will be available on Hopster between July and September this year.

The Gruffalo: This enchanting film tells the story of a mouse who goes in search of a nut. Along the way, he is confronted by three hungry animals who each thinks that the mouse looks good! Forced to rely on his wits for survival, Mouse invents an imaginary monster to scare them away, but what happens when he comes face to face with his own creation?

The Gruffalo’s Child: One wild and windy night, the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warnings and bravely tiptoes out into the snow in search of the Big Bad Mouse. She meets Snake, Owl and Fox but no sign of the fabled Mouse. He doesn’t really exist… or does he?
