Charming children's short
3 August 2004 | by (Fort Lauderdale, FL) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I worked in a school media center over 10 years ago. I had it on my mind lately and wanted to see if I could find it to show to my own children, but no luck. At least it is listed here. It was a great short film the school children, grades Kindergarten through fifth, loved to watch. It's based on a chapter from "Homer Price" by Robert McCloskey about a doughnut machine that goes wild, involving Homer, his friends, and a town full of various characters. Things get really crazy when a rich woman loses a bracelet, and she thinks it wound up in the doughnut machine! It's been so long since I've seen the movie that I can't remember how it ends- guess I'll have to buy the book!
