Janet from Wallington 20th January

Just like the book, they made it very enjoyable for my 2 year old grandson. I found the car scene a bit boring but enjoyed the rest of the show and the staff were excellent.

Guest20th January

We really enjoyed the show- and the Tiger was very friendly - and not scary. The fact that he didn’t talk made him seem friendly. Overall a lovely show for the little ones
