A Great Children's movie
12 March 2001 | by brboyinlaSee all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie as a child on HBO. I keep looking for a copy to rent or buy. It is the delightful story of a young girl(animated) who gets lost in the Australian outback(Live footage).

She is befriended by a group of animals who help her through the outback to find her way back home. Along the way she learns a bit about the history of the outback. Filled with some catchy songs and a great story, this movie rates high among my favorite children's movies. If you and your child get a chance to see this I highly recommend it
