has any one seen the gruffalo?

the theatre tour thats goinjg on at the moment, i have booked to take my 2 ds's to see it on saturday in brighton. they are 8 and 3, i'm sure that 8yo ds will be fine, but am a bit worried about ds2 (3yo) it is his favourite book and he can repaeat it too you word for word, but he keeps asking me it will be a real gruffalo.

should i be worried or will it be fine?

toria77 Sun 10-Jul-05 20:55:33

ah missed it love that book

vickiyumyum Sun 10-Jul-05 20:58:25

my ds2 does too, hes just discovered the gruffalos child as well.

it gets abit much though i have to read it every night and he knows if i try to skip a bit, and he can tell i to me word for word without the book!
many times i've heard him sat in teh back of the car telling the story of the gruffalo.

have you read all the others by the same authors- they are great : 'room on a broom' ' the tallest giant in town' and there are more- well worth a look

Dd went to see The Gruffalo when she was around 2. She loved it. Very very gentle play, the Gruffalo I saw looked like a giant teddy bear really.

Seeing The Gruffalo's Child in October, and really looking forward to it.

quite looking forward to seeing it now.
will def have a look for the other books for ds2, got to get him to read something else!

i took ds a couple of months ago when he was 3-and-a-bit. he did enjoy it (did the most roaring of any child in the audience ), but it was a bit over his head. also, we hadn't read the book for a while so i'm not sure he remembered the story. and it was really expensive. good apart from that though....

Just seen that it is coming to Sheffield in November. DD loves the story so think I will book tickets for her.

flatmouse Mon 11-Jul-05 09:47:11

Thanks for the links. Hoping the Autumn tour comes close by.

fishy, my DD was under 3 when we went to see the Gruffalo and she LOVED it.

Hulababy Mon 11-Jul-05 13:28:54

DD is looking forward to it already and it is months away! She loves shows though, and I am sure she will have a great time. TBH think I am quite looking forward to it too. LOL

I took DS (2.9) to see The Gruffalo a few weeks ago. It's his favourite book/DVD and he was mesmerised by it. He had a big grin on his face throughout and kept turning to me, smiling and nodding.
Can't wait to take him to see Gruffalo's Child at Christmas.

NomDePlume Mon 11-Jul-05 13:37:02

Is the Gruffalo's Child being done too ? By the same company ?

batters Mon 11-Jul-05 15:15:28

ndp - yes it is.
