Perrine travels across Europe with her mother, a photographer, in a cabin drawn by a donkey. They are heading to a small village in northern France, the home of Perrine's dead father.

Perrine doesn't know that they are unwanted in the village; Perrine's father left the village after having quarrelled with his father (Perrine's grandfather) and married in India against his father's will. After her mother falls ill, Perrine has to sell everything, including her beloved donkey Palikare, to pay for medicine.

Mother dies in Paris and before dying tells the girl that she has to make her grandfather love her before he knows who she really is. After a journey full of hardships, Perrine finally arrives in the village where she learns that her grandfather is the rich owner of the factory that feeds all the villagers.

Presenting herself under a false name, Perrine gets a job on the factory, searching for a way to the heart of her grandfather.

They explore and discuss issues that most American children's shows don't even acknowledge! Not all of them are overly happy pieces of fluff meant to tell kids that all their dreams will come true. When things get serious in their kids shows, BY GOD DO THEY GET SERIOUS! Japan's ...

I've watched a lot of the series in the World Masterpiece Theater.
And this is by far my favorite.
It starts out slow at first, however, once she arrives at her Grandfather's location, it becomes much more eventful and exciting. This became one of the most satisfying anime I've ever watched. It has a good balance of sad moments and moments that make you want to high five your invisible buddy.

The voice acting was pinpoint in my opinion.

The key thing to this anime is those eventful moments that make you feel good inside or when things are revealed, the anime really knows how to capture that moment. ...

English is not my language.
This review I took some main points, it's not a detailed analysis of the work. It contains some spoilers.

After the death of her father, Perrine and her mother go on a journey to France. They go with a donkey named Palikare and her dog named Baron.
Honestly, I thought this anime was going to be an extremely dramatic journey, just like Ie Naki Ko. Well, the anime doesn't have the overdramatic journey that Ie Naki Ko has, and this is one of the ...
