Sure, we live in Wales, our kids go to a typical Welsh primary school, we were not consulted as to whether or not we would like our kids to be exposed to the play.

In the comic it is stated that God made all the animals as they are today.

Two of the characters in the play appear in the comic that is given out to the kids and hint at the fact that they are really angels not humans.

I say I find it sinister because it is Christianity painted as fun and hip, it certainly doesn't read like it is offering a certain view of the world that some people might believe, creation is stated as fact as is everything else claimed in the comic.

It annoys me most because school is not the place to claim that any particular ideology or religion is the right one to live by, esecially not to 5 year olds.
