Best part of story, including ending: What I liked about the movie is how it is set in the prehistoric times. There is a good message in the movie about cherishing and protecting each other. The movie is quite different than most animated children films.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene is when Guy has a fire torch in his hands and Eaps brother closes his eyes in terror saying, " There is fire in his hands" and Eaps replies with, " No, No its fire".

Opinion about the main character: What I like about the character is her curiosity. What I didn't enjoy about her character is she is quite rebellious and not appreciative of what her father has given her and her family.
