This is practically a scene by scene exact retelling of the movie of the same name. Some of the emotional or philosophical "talks" that happen have been skipped over but all the action and plot is present. Kids who love the movie will enjoy being able to read this on their own. The humour is present and mostly works. My favourite parts of the movie are the whale talk and the "mine, mine!" scenes. Dory talking whale-ish just didn't come across the same in the text, even when you are applying the voice in your head, on the other hand, they played up the "mine,mine!" bit and it worked very well especially with my mind applying the voice. That turned out to be the best part of the book for me. Definitely recommended for kids about ten and younger.
