Synopsis

This is Our House by Michael Rosen

This is a brilliantly observed story of prejudice and children at play from the Children's Laureate Michael Rosen - now brought to life with an animated DVD! George says the cardboard house is his alone and isn't for girls, twins or people with glasses. But then he comes back to find that there are people inside who don't think it is for people who have red hair - like George. This is a topical and perceptive book that shows that it's much more fun to share. Offering a whole new storytelling experience, this picture book and DVD edition features a charming story animation, narrated by Adjoa Andoh. Running time is approximately 6 minutes. This title is part of the innovative picture book and animated DVD range (produced in conjunction with King Rollo Films).
