REVIEW:
I love this story!
Two people, very different people, meet under unique circumstances and become travel companions. What happens to them along the way is what has you turning page after page. Nia, a stupid teenager, gets a hair-brained idea and literally runs with it. Poor Kurt, and elderly man, has to reel her in and watch over her. their bumps in the road are scary and exciting. 
It's just a well written tale that I believe anyone who reads it will enjoy it.


4.5/5

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.
