The Singing Kettle News/ Dennis The Menace

In The Singing Kettle News we catch up with our ace reporters as they try to scoop the big stories happening in Kettle, complete with colourful and catchy tunes. At the same time, kids learn about colours, the alphabet, road safety and friendship.

In Wanted, Dennis turns Beanotown's water supply into lovely. wobbly jelly. Villains trick him into robbing the bank, but with Gnasher's help, you can be sure that Dennis will gain the upper hand. The other two episodes are The Day TV Was Banned and The Secret Diary.

Thanks to PolyGram Video, we've got five copies of each video to give away. To win, all you have to do is answer this question:

What type of animal is Gnasher?

Answers on a postcard by Fri 5 Dec. Mark them: KETTLE/MENACE COMP, The List, 14 High Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1T6.
