Review by Wosret
I have lots of books like this, and I love Wallace & Gromit, so I knew I had to have this one.First, I'm very disappointed that Gromit has been given a "voice" in this book. Part of his charm is that he doesn't speak, and this should carry over to not writing anything, either. He's a dog, for crying out loud! A very intelligent dog, but it breaks my suspension of disbelief to have him write notes in this book.Second, one of the interactive parts of this book was promptly ripped by my four year old daughter. It was kind of flimsy to begin with, so just keep an eye on your copy if you let small kids play with it. (It IS a kid's book, right?)I liked the extra bits overall. No huge revelations, and it will feel incomplete when their next adventure comes out, but a nice addition to a W&G collection.

Good for beginning readers in K-1st grade. Cartoon strip style books that encourage the reader to follow the story with words and drawings. Students are eager to find out what the characters are doing in each of their adventures.* Good indepentdent reading* Students can draw their own graphic novels/cartoons
