Ever since discovering Tom & Jerry on our last international flight miss 5 has been asking to see the ‘funny cat and mouse’ again. The hilarious duo may not be the youngest on the block, but they are popular as ever and still manage to make everyone giggle. This August they are returning to the screens with a real family favourite:

Tom & Jerry

After all the excitement of the ruby slippers, the Wicked Witch of the West and her incredible trip through the Land of Oz the loveable Dorothy, Tom and Jerry are safely back in Kansas, where no one believes her amazing tales. There is no time to rest though, it is not long until her friends from Oz show up to ask for help…

In ‘Tom & Jerry: Back to Oz’ the trio returns to Oz on a brand new adventure to defeat the evil Gnome King and bring back the peace. The Gnome King has captured all the magical items he could get his hands on, all that is missing are Dorothy’s ruby red slippers. Together with Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Lion they set off to find the Gnome King. Join Tom and Jerry for an hour of classic laughs and giggles, crazy antics and musical entertainment.

‘Tom & Jerry: Back to Oz’ is now available on DVD (RRP $19.95) at major retailers across Australia.

As you may know our son Tommie has been a big fan of the Aussie Stuff Happens boys books from the start. He loves it when a new title is added to the range and has enjoyed all of them so far, in saying that he has been especially hanging out for Tom to be added to the Stuff Happens family (nothing like reading your own name in a book!). Last month the wait was finally over, meet Tom and Harry:

Stuff Happens TomJust when he thought the tennis cup was his Tom’s luck turns around and he loses the match. His confidence has taken a big hit and he may even quit tennis all together. Stuff Happens: Tom teaches young readers that the power of imagination and believing in yourself are important keys to achieving your goal. Winning is awesome but it is okay to make mistakes too, once Tom starts believing in himself he is finally able to hit the winning serve and enjoy tennis again.

Stuff Happens HarryIn Stuff Happens: Harry the whole class goes on an excursion to the art gallery and Harry discovers that art is not as boring as he thought it was. Normally he prefers to fly under the radar so when it turns out he has a talent for drawing Harry has mixed feelings. On the one hand he loves the compliments of his mum and teacher but he is also worried his friends will make fun of him. When his artwork is the big hit at the Art Fair he realises that being different is pretty cool too.
