The performance of this story is wonderful and story is so lovely especially at the end. Worries don't matter no more when happiness and love fill the little creature's journey of life.
I loved it because it had a happy ending. The best bit was when they got married. I lived all the three characters because they were all so nice. I also liled that there were no bad bits. Amélie, 5 years old
