The score remains intact but the storyline is given a facelift with a grim contemporary opening sequence and some genuinely funny animal antics that make this a captivating experience for children. © 2015 Gramophone

MusicWeb International, December 2014

The film was made with the stop-frame model animation technique…[and the] results are simply stunning. Every time you watch it something new catches the eye and the attention to detail throughout the 30 minutes duration is phenomenal.

Although the setting is cold and forbidding it’s the warmth of the characters that makes it so enjoyable. The story still retains a level of innocence and the balance between new and old is really well managed. It took five years of hard work, imagination, meticulous set and puppet building and total dedication to pull this off. This is a treat for young and old alike. © 2014 MusicWeb International Read complete review
