Incredibly Inventive
2 December 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is so much fun and dynamic. Felix is created on paper and immediately cops an attitude. He insists on the artist drawing a tail and goes to a bootblack to get himself colored. As he leaves, he spots an ugly cat, weeping into her newspaper. He borrows an eraser and creates a beautiful face. Now she begins to make demands on him. She wants a pretty dress. He risks his life to get her some pearls, facing many deep sea denizens. But the conclusion is what is worth waiting for. Excellent.
