The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo's Child and The Bear

Three beautifully animated animated tales based on best selling Children's books.

The Gruffalo

This enchanting film tells the story of a mouse who 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?

The Bear

When a little girl loses her teddy bear in the polar bear enclosure at the zoo, she is surprised but very happy when the polar bear turns up at her home to return it. 


A hush settles over the forest when the cold sets in: the animals are sleeping. This autumn we follow them into their burrows, dens and cosy caves to enjoy one last adventure before it’s time to snooze.
