The books

  • First Installment Wins: The other books are not hated, but the first one was the only one nominated for a Newbery and is the most widely read of them, due to its availability in the public domain.

The film

  • Awesome Art: As per the norm for a Cartoon Saloon film, it looks absolutely gorgeous, like a children's picture book come to life.
  • So Okay, It's Average: Critical consensus is that, while a perfectly fine family film, it feels more like a mainstream children's film than most of Cartoon Saloon's other work, especially since the critically-acclaimed Wolfwalkers two years earlier managed to set such a high bar for the studio previously.
