I just watch this, haven read the book as a child and it being one of my favorites, I thought I would really like it, but I didn't! The boy acted like a brat, the creatures acted like they were just insane! They weren't cute or even really funny! In the end it made very little sense and I found myself happy when it finally ended! It was boring for the most part, and disturbing the rest of the time! It seems it could have been done allot better!
