Dove Review

Here is a unique and fun story about a boy who takes care of an elephant. A young boy has no family and comes across a baby elephant. The boy befriends the elephant by offering him fruit and soon he is working with the elephant to make a living for them both.

The elephant is talented at using his trunk to paint and his paintings are very well done especially for…well, an elephant! The boy names the elephant Lucky and he and Lucky share several adventures. He and Lucky even do a dance together. When Lucky meets a female elephant it becomes clear that the boy might have to eventually set Lucky free.

We are pleased to award this DVD our Dove Seal for ages twelve plus, due to a strong utterance of language. The movie features some great moments between the boy and Lucky. Enjoy watching this one soon.
