Dove Review

Brody is to follow in his father's footsteps as the Tibetan mastiff that protects the sheep in Paradise Village on Snow Mountain. But music is in his heart and head, which disappoints his dad.

This is an intriguing story of following your dreams and doing the right things. At times it can be a bit confusing where the story is headed but it is entertaining and filled with music. The storyline also addresses the importance of helping others, believing in yourself and family. We award the Dove Family-Approved Seal for all ages to this musical adventure.
