Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (2):

Snakes and crocs provide the standard elements of drama, but fall short of any heightened excitement; no real danger gets too close as the twosome stumbles along, evading one creature after another. Annie, the animal lover, here is terrified of all bugs, which surprises even Jack. The needed object, through no effort of their own, falls into their lap as an unwanted gift, which adds to mystery but detracts from the magic.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
