The triumph of imagination over threat.
28 September 2018 | by nancyldraperSee all my reviews

The triumph of imagination over threat. A well known child's book by Julia Donaldson brought to full life. Beautifully animated, filling out the whimsy behind the words. Favourite actors lending their voice talents. Rene Aubry's music captures the tone of the story perfectly. Wit, texture and warmth, well worthy of the prestigious award attention given it. I give this film an 8 (clever) out of 10. {Animated Short}
