Book Box Collection DVD

Four of our most popular Book Box series are brought together on one DVD. Alice Through the Looking Glass is a faithful, modern dramatisation of Lewis Carroll's classic story with impressive special effects and a star-studded cast including Kate Beckinsale and Steve Coogan. Set in Australia, Emmy Award winning Blabber Mouth and Sticky Beak centres on Rowena Batts, mute since birth, and her embarrassing, eccentric father. With Bill's New Frock, Anne Fine has created a fairy tale with a feminist twist, when Bill wakes up to find that he has become a girl. Grandpa Chatterji is the story of a family of Indian origin living in England who are visited by their grandfathers, one from Leicester, the other from Calcutta. Seen through the eyes of grandchildren Sanjay and Neetu, the visits highlight contrasts between East and West.
