Jay Carr
Boston Globe
A solid, not to say ironclad, winner in the less than overcrowded family animation arena. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Both a step back and a step forward from the trends of modern animation, it feels like a classic even though it's just out of the box. Full Review
Lawrence Van Gelder
The New York Times
A smooth, skilled example of animated filmmaking. Full Review
Mary Elizabeth Williams
