I'm always in trouble when I watch an animated film and fall a little in love with a character. But yep at 60 I still can and it was the school teacher in this Christmas tale that had me tingly.
Thankfully it wasn't just my adoration for a character that made me really like this Netflix effort. A true story of Christmas told in the older cartoon-style animation than the more modern style we see these days but so much better for it.
The story evolved and grew into a real Christmas story and was very cleverly put together and will appeal to all ages.
Will it be added to my list of five or six must-watch films at Christmas, possibly not, but I will revisit it at times and recommend to everyone who enjoys a nice Christmas animated tale.
