Are there any sad bits at all? We went to see the March of the Penguins - same director, I think, and soem bits were a bit much. But the girls are older now - six and eight - and from what you've said above I think they'd love it. V kind of you to post a review.

Oh that sounds okay. I'l just let them know that happens. It sounds lovely so thanks very much. I've taken to buying DVDs of films like My Fair Lady/Singing in the Rain/Oklahoma etc. They loved Sound of Music and The Wizard of Oz as well. Must get Naional Velvet - the one with Elizabeth Taylor.

I saw this advertised but was sure the fox would die/the girl would die/they'd be separated and I'd sob and embarass my girls.

So none of the above happen?

sounds right up DD1's street.

she has a way with animals and had expressed in an interest in seeing this.

the first film she's ever asked to see (she's 5).

OK thanks, it sounds safe to go to grin

I thought this might do to DD1 what Watership Down did to me as a child! But you say it is not upsetting? She enjoyed Nim's Island so do you think she would like this?

Dd2 is exactly the type of child that would love this film by the sounds of it. So long as there isn't any upsetting bits that is.
