As part of our Africa week celebrations we watched Michel Ocelot's enthralling fable 'Kirikou and the Sorceress'. It tells the story of the tiny Kirikou (just 10cm tall!) and the journey he undertakes in order to discover the secret of the evil sorceress and to find the truth. Kirikou narrates the whole story himself and despite his size (just like the mouse in the fable 'The Lion and The Mouse' we have been reading about this week) he is victorious. The animation is rich and the soundtrack is super. Our class gave the movie ten out of ten and it would be well worth renting out to see again at home (it's a treat both for adults and children alike!!)
