Kirikou and the Wild Beasts
Tiny Senegalese hero Kirikou is back in this sumptuous follow-up to the universally beloved Kirikou and the Sorceress. Using his wits and speed, brave Kirikou once again sets out to thwart the evil Sorceress Karaba and save his village from supernatural and environmental perils. Based on traditional West African folk tales, Kirikou and the Wild Beasts shows how the smallest and most valiant of heroes can overcome the fiercest of beasts.
