I love how the characters all seem bright and fun it reminds me very much of the TV shows I watched when growing up.  My girls love the introduction clip so I cannot wait to see how they find the show on Monday.

I have a copy of the Q Pootle 5 book by Nick Butterworth, which the show is based upon to giveaway.  Prize winner will be drawn at random from the Rafflecopter entries, Good luck.  Closing date of giveaway is Sunday 11th August at midnight.
