The film is very touching, portraying Leo as a brave young man. It is an action packed, simply animated and a heart warming film.

It has its humourous moments from the villains trusty side kicks and vicious tiny dog, Rufus. The film shows us about the power of teamwork, friendship, family, and courageous acts of kindness. Leo’s illness pulls at the heart-strings yet The Face and his gang bring humour to the film.

My children aged 14, 9 and 5 all enjoyed watching this simple animated fantasy film and found it to be entertaining. They were engaged the whole way through. Leo spends a lot of time in his hospital bed due to his illness and gets the freedom that he yearns by becoming phantom boy. He feels free from the disease by soaring up high in the sky over buildings and flying through walls.

Phantom boy is a beautiful story but also a brilliant superhero film and will leave you feeling warm inside.

The funny things they say and do!

I’ve not posted out a funny things they say and do for a while, not because the boys haven’t done anything funny but simply because i have just not had the spare time to write it down. This week i am off work and although we have been busy with Christmas and sickness i managed to jot down a few things that they have done.

Joseph was arguing with his older brother, i asked them what was going on, Joseph got all upset and said “Jak was confusing me to do it!” I think he meant that his big brother was teasing him!

We was driving to Grandads house for dinner and he lives about 45 minutes away from us

Joseph: Where are we going?

Me: To visit granddad he is cooking us a dinner

Joseph: Well it can’t be little granddad as he lives in another country! (We was driving to the other granddad)

Me: Granddad doesn’t live in another country Joseph, he just lives far far away in another County!

Joseph: But granddad speaks in another language and sometimes i can’t understand him!

Me: granddad is from Yorkshire honey and mummy was born there too, but i just don’t talk with the same accent as Grandad anymore!

Joseph: That’s because you taught yourself english!

We was all eating dinner at Grandad’s house with the little ones at the other end of the kitchen on their own little table. After finishing our food we was having a little chat with some laughter and i looked over to the boys table, i saw jak stood there and walked off so i thought they had all left their table and gone in to the living room to play games. After a few minutes of talking with the other adults at the table it all went silent and we heard a little voice pipe up…

“I don’t like being all on my own!”

I stood up and looked over to the little table and there was Joseph sat hidden behind a large glass still eating his ice cream all on his own… Poor little thing! lol

Christmas morning we was all opening our presents and the boys spent more time in daddy’s big empty box playing cars…
