Zoe Williams has no enthusiasm for children's television or children's books. They're seriously witless |

No Enthusiasm

Fairly amusing...

It's meant to be a joy for parents and children, the way they splish- splosh through the puddles, then yimp-yomp through the mud, then swish-swash through the grass, but seriously, it goes on for ever. It's totally witless. If you skip the boring bits, you are immediately at the end...

The sad thing is, I like all the 'witless' stories Zoe Williams alluded to. We're Going On A Bear Hunt is a classic and a wonderful re-telling by Michael Rosen. Without Julia Donaldson's A Squash And A Squeeze, there may not have been The Gruffalo and the beauty of The Mole Who Knew It Was None Of His Business is that it's a pile of poo!
