A favorite childhood staple--the "telephone" game--makes for a mixed-up message misadventure. Kids will recognize a favorite game ("telephone") in which a passed-along phrase gets hopelessly and hilariously garbled. Funny situations, characters, and mishaps bring on the giggles and also convey how we sometimes hear things as we want them to be. Finally, with all its silliness and mayhem, this is also a nice portrait of a community pulling together to help one of their own get un-stuck.
