“’Charming, playful, terrifically entertaining. A visually gorgeous, engaging primer that should drive the more intellectually curious children to want to learn more about the subject. Filled with welcome humor of both the visual and verbal varieties. The animation features many amusing touches and there are some wonderfully sly jokes.”
