If you like the illustrations or not is a matter of taste but a little warning is in place here. Don’t expect the amazing visual effects of the film. This is a classic and the pictures are also classics. They are funny and definitely enjoyable but they are not up to par with Hollywood movies. It could be a good idea to hold off with the movie a bit; at least till your children know the story from the book or they could find it a bit tame on the visual side.
