It was a good movie. Maybe I should reconsider my position on always reading a book before seeing the movie. I would have rated this movie SO MUCH higher if I had seen it before reading the book. As it was, I kept comparing the movie to the book, and that detracted from enjoying the movie.
Would I recommend it? Absolutely, whether you have read the book or not. Just be sure to take plenty of tissue.
Totally kid safe, only a couple of kisses.
