 "I don't believe so, sir."

  1. Michael Jackson was such a genius but so messed up, too. Does this book answer some questions?

  3. Michael Jackson was never really a part of my childhood so I never understood the fascination with him, but I've always felt sorry for so much of stuff that was written about him in the media! Thanks for hosting:) Enjoy your weekend!

  7. There's so much that was written and speculated about MJ that it's often hard to know what was true. Hopefully this book helps to clarify some of that. There was a lot of sadness to his life, which really is too bad.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.
