The early years of the Great Depression are depicted in the childhood memoir of the author’s father, Elmer. The depression strikes, the business closes, and Dela and Elma move from their home to an apartment in Nevergreen City where Dela looks for work while promising Elmer they would one day operate a store of their own once more. This idyllic life is short-lived. Due to Elmer’s aptitude for finding things, he and his mother Dela successfully run a general store together that meets the requirements of the neighborhood. Elmer methodically states that he had this dream, which makes Dela, who is already trying to keep both of their heads above water, more despondent. In the search function on the Afdah

Review of the movie My Father’s Dragon 2022.
The animation in the film is beautifully done and done in Cartoon Saloon’s distinctive design aesthetic. That successfully converts Ruth Stiles Gannett’s artwork to animation because of its use of relatively simple shapes.
