My name is Lily-Sue, but my mummy calls me Munchkin (or 'Munch' for short!) I am 8 years old, and this is where my mummy will help me write all about all the fun things we do together. I hope you enjoy reading about the adventures of my mummy and me, Munchkin, with the occasional appearance from the siblings - Beastie and Plumlet.

Win with The Book of Life!

From producer Guillermo del Toro and director Jorge Gutierrez comes an animated comedy with a unique visual style. THE BOOK OF LIFE is the journey of Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart. Before choosing which path to follow, he embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds where he must face his greatest fears. Rich with a fresh take on pop music favorites, THE BOOK OF LIFE encourages us to celebrate the past while looking forward to the future.

Nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film, The Book of Life features the voices of Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana and Channing Tatum, The Book of Life promises to provide fun and entertainment for the whole family!

To celebrate the release of the DVD/Blu-Ray/HD Digital Download on Monday, 16th February, 2015, we are getting into the party spirit, ready to have our own Book of Life viewing party in The Patch!
