Its coming near us soon and I wondered if it was any good - it is by a theatre group called Tall Stories and it says it is for 3 and upwards.....
I've got a 7 year old and I wanted to take her and some of her friends - is it too junior for her?

yes we saw it.. but dd was then 4 I think... she enjoyed it, and we did too.

In terms of if it's too junior, well I don't reckon it matters with children's theatre.

If she knows the story (and even if she doesn't) I'm sure she will enjoy the production,

I was going to do it for her 8th birthday outing - its that or the London Eye, but I didn't want her streetwise friends getting sniffy with me for something that was too babyish....I say keep em young forever..........

I reckon theatre is always a good option for kids.
London Eye will be there tomorrow!!

we loved it, started us off going to kids’ theatre. IIRC children were nearly 4, nearly 2 and tiny baby (or maybe not even born!!??)
I would say a 7 yo would enjoy it too. It’s very lively and not too long (always crucial with littlies I think)

Thanks I think I'll book it once she approves!!!!

My 2.10 year old loves the book - and I was thinking of taking him to see the production - do you think he's too young?

desph, no, my dd was certainly not even 2 and she loved it. Can yr ds sit still for a reasonable period of time (eg 10-15 mins to listen to a book) if so then I think you'll find he'll be fine. Nobody minds a bit of noise and fidgeting anyway, in fact you expect it at a children's show.

saw this on Saturday with a 4 yr old and lots of 8 year olds. Perfect for 4-6 year olds, I reckon. Very clever and only an hour worth it if coming near you......

DS loved it and we thought it was pretty good, too. Although, strangely, since seeing it, DS hasn't wanted to read the book--and it used to be his favourite.
