I really enjoyed this, the animation, the narration, the music...... Very professional. Deserves much praise!

Aww, I always sympathize with the monster. Not with the little girl. Never trust the little girl... never.

Great animation though. At first it seems like a cliche (even though I just knew it wouldn't be) of the monster gaining a friend and them *stab*. Oh well, dem mixed emotions. 5/5

Oh I simply love this kind of story, interesting and attention-grabbing at first, then a heatwarming middle, almost like it's going to be a fairy-tale ending, only to be struck down by some cruel and sadistic twist!
