    I think the movie was better then what I had expected/pictured especially in cartoon. I had a realistic picture to the book in my head.

    Yes because the book has more detail but you can’t really picture what is going on in the book ,it’s more like you can read what the animals are thinking and we can see what actions get taken place in the movies. – Enythe

    The movie is much better even if I wasn’t here through the whole thing, but I barely could understand the book so the movie could picture everything better.

  4. Kenny Oliveras

    I dont actually remember the book, but i can say that the film gave me a clearer mindset and idea of what its talking about .

  5. zay

    the book described everything perfectly i was imagining the book the same exact way that i see the movie its no real difference to me

  6. Naja Shabazz

    The movie was way better than the text because it had detailed introduction to explain the themes and settings of the book. As opposed to the book less interesting.
