This is an awesome, amazing show – both for the children and the adults. It went much further than our expectations and was even better than the books which we wouldn’t normally say. The set, lighting and costumes were flawless and really clever and we loved the audience involvement.

The show was great – bright, lively and fun. The set was amazing and the scenery changes so clever – I've never seen anything like it before. The cast were excellent – superb diction and very professional. It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.

We didn't know what to expect but were extremely pleasantly surprised by this excellent production which compared very well to the books. The set was really amazing - we have not seen anything similar and the cast are very talented.
Stanhope Barrington CE Primary

The children (and adults!) thought the production was fantastic- they particularly liked the projections that were used in the show as well as the songs! It was brilliant to see all of the doodles so well incorporated - we haven’t seen projections used in this way before. The songs were very catchy and the children enjoyed singing them. It went way beyond our expectations - the children were captivated from start to finish. Absolutely fantastic!
Shortstown Primary School             

The show was better than we expected and better even than the books. The set technology was amazing and we loved the songs. It's a brilliant, fantastic show!
