An extraordinary achievement.

Despite a lightness of plot, it most beautifully captures the book's free-floating, fantastic sense of adventure and wonder.

A technological marvel, arch and innovative with a daringly offbeat visual conception. But it's also a strenuously artful film.

It will, I think, entertain kids for whom stop-motion animation is the last thing they're thinking about.

The vocal cast are great fun, and the animation is smooth and vibrant. Except for a few treacly songs, this is great entertainment for all.
