I recently viewed this animated short when I purchased the Paul McCarteny Animation and Music Collection on DVD from walmart. I remember the book as a child, and I always loved it. The movie is a direct adaptation from the book and definitely lives up to the books good name. The animation is spectacular, as well as the sounds and music. I watched it with my mother, who's never read the book and I'm sure she enjoyed it as much as me, if not more!
Anyone can enjoy this animated short, it's humorous, fun, original, and beautifully animated. It is definitely going on my list of favorite films... as we speak!
Everyone should see this movie! Go buy it NOW!
