Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

This engaging special offers viewers a chance to participate in Puss's adventures by allowing them to choose options that make each scenario equally entertaining. Although the choices are limited, each narrative is just long enough and lively enough to keep you engaged. Puss's reactions to reader choices also adds to the amusement.

Young viewers will enjoy the goofy quality of the stories, which are full of funny moments and some occasional bathroom humor. But as with this special's predecessor Shrek, the writing cleverly incorporates quips that will make adults chuckle while flying over kids' heads. Overall, Puss in Book will easily captivate kids, and the interactive nature of the show only makes it more compelling.
