One of the best for children that I have seen
4 February 2016 | by blimdbSee all my reviews

I cannot compare with the first film which I have not yet seen (see previous review that liked it better). I hesitated to give it a 10, but I cannot point to a fault in this animation for children. My grand children love it, and have seen it repeatedly: I would say it can be watched from two to seven (I have not yet tried older). From my point of view it teaches a lot that is important, including cultural differences, respect, empathy, among many other things. Tasteful and non violent, though not escaping conflictual situations. The quality of the drawing and the animation is simple and aesthetically pleasing, especially regarding colors.
