violence
There is occasional very mild violence as child characters engage in brief fighting, without injuries being caused, in a fantastical, imaginary world.
threat and horror
In mild scary scenes, imaginary child characters are pursued by an adult and a ghost girl with spooky eyes who wish to do them harm. There are threats of being eaten, a monstrous snake menaces a young girl, and the ghost girl transforms into a dark, danger-filled whirlwind. Whilst occasionally intense, the scares are not unduly prolonged and are balanced by their fantastical nature, as well as a focus on the courage and resourcefulness of the children as they help each other to bring about reassuring outcomes to their predicaments.
injury detail
A young girl has small abrasions on her face after being involved in an accident.
theme
There are mild upsetting scenes centred on a young child lying in a coma in hospital, and both an adult and a child coming to terms with the death of a loved one. The themes of bereavement and grief are handled with sensitivity.
