The Dahl truth behind your favourite nursery rhymes (and their sinister sides)
14 September 2018 | by nancyldraperSee all my reviews

The Dahl story behind some of your favourite nursery rhymes (and their sinister sides). Lots of fun. Wonderful animation (if you can get a hold of the DVD, there is an excellent Special Feature/Behind the Scenes on The Making of...). Gifted voice cast. Nominated for a 2018 Oscar, this is all round fun. I give this film a 7.9 (really good) out of 10. {Animated Tales}
