We loved this Movie I especially loved the short film before the movie about Nessie it was way to adorable I would love to watch a whole movie just on her. Kaia sat through the whole movie transfixed on the screen. She loved every moment of it and when we got home she told her Daddy all about every bit of the movie. Make sure you wait through the credits because there is a surprise at the VERY END of the credits. Its a good one you don’t want to miss!
