Bluebell: But they believed in each other.
Random Kitten: That's nice.
That random kitten might not really believe in his/her siblings.
Poor random kitten.

I also find it ironic that at the beginning it lists Bluebell as a natural story-teller and then he proceeds to tell a story in such a horrible way xd

On the upside it has a screenshot with Orchis in it!

Speaking of Bluebell's stories...in TFWD he tells the story of King Fur-Rocious, and it sounds like he made the whole thing up as he went along.

That's nice about Orchis, but I assume he's not named? :/

Honestly that seems like just the thing Bluebell would do^^

Yea, it's not even focused on him. It's a shot of Woundwort on the Down right before he get killed by the dog...

It really is a pity they didn't try harder with this book as I do kinda like the style used for the drawings. I would love to see the others in it.

It's interesting to note that the picture book clearly says that Woundwort is dead, while the miniseries and the original book leave it open.

It really is.  The book never reached its full potential.

True, it's very clear on that. But maybe Bluebell wanted to reassure the kittens that the bad bunny was gone?

I think the kittens actually don't find the story all that interesting because by the time they get to Cowslip's warren, half of them appear to be sleeping?

Considering how poorly Bluebell told the story...can't really blame them :snowdrop2

Also:
Although the stuffed animals. Who knows what quality they are.   :exactly :snowdrop2
Still no plushies released :bigwig At this rate I doubt any will ever be released.

Haha true poor kittens. But I guess it's one way to get them to sleep!

If I remember correctly, this is from the scene where they ask Bigwig to let them see the Threarah.

Based on other merchandise, if there was to be any soft toys, they'd probably be Steiff specials at over £100 each...

Here lies a signature that has little point.

Most likely.  That would fit in very well with all the other expensive merchandise that was released.

I was going to say "but that would be better than no plushes at all", but would it?  These plushes are collector's items, and you couldn't really do much with them other than observing, unlike those for the 1999 series.
