"If I had my way, I'd take a boat from the river...", February 3, 2003
Reviewer: cousinpaco (Cincinnati, OH United States)
Animation studios are desperate to find proven material for their feature films--especially in the wake of disappointments like "Treasure Planet."
That's why I'm surprised nobody has optioned the rights to one of the greatest children's books ever; it has emotion, thrills, an important lesson, and one of the cutest lead characters I've ever seen.
That book is, of course, "Scuffy the Tugboat."
Scuffy is a toy tugboat (hence the title) who dreams of something more than "sailing" in his little bathtub. When he is taken outside and accidentally swept away in a river, his harrowing adventure makes him realize that he should never have taken his old life for granted.
Just imagine Scuffy the Tugboat brought to life by CGI, charging down rivers, dodging logs and old tires...and facing the bustle of a busy shipyard before being miraculously recovered by his owner.
I can practically hear a popular actor like Ed Burns lending his distinctive voice to the little red tugboat, and Sting's nautical motif from "the Soul Cages" leads me to nominate him for the soundtrack.
As long as it's a faithful adaptation of this classic tugboat tale, nobody would ever be able to say: "the book was better!"

Children will enjoy this story of a young brother and sister who plant seeds that will result, after much hard work and patience, in a bountiful garden! It teaches that good things come to those who wait, and features a little song at the end of the book: “What We Plant in the Spring We Eat in the Fall.”
