Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids - Nuclear Wart Review & Giveaway

Grotbags received another fabulous DVD to review from the lovely folk at Abbey Home Media, this one is called Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids (Nuclear Wart).
This DVD is based on the books by Jamie Rix and is narrated by Nigel Planner.  There are 11 funny episodes and it runs for over 2 hours:
  • Nuclear Wart
  • The Ugly Prince
  • Cat's Eyes
  • Message in a Bottle
  • The Dragon Moth
  • The Long Face
  • The Kingdom of Wax
  • The Spelling Bee
  • The Flat Pack Kid
  • The Blood Doctor
  • The Apostrophic Expositor
Grotbags was riveted by this DVD, and she thought it was hilarious how the naughty kids always got their just deserts.  She has been reading some of the Gruesome Tales books at school and so was really pleased to get the opportunity to watch this.  Each episode is a little spooky and the naughty kid gets taught a lesson in a humerous way.  This DVD is on sale now but I have 4 copies to give away by completing the rafflecopter form below.

  1. Yes, all of them and on more than one occasion! One of the hardest was not letting my daughter go to see Blue, the band, I'm going back some time here. At the time I felt like the worst Mum in the world but looking back it had an extra benefit that I couldn't have foreseen. Sometimes we have to be cruel to be kind.
