Tikki Tikki Tembo... and More Favorite Tales


Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Among the most rewarding volumes in the essential Scholastic Video Collection are those featuring stories that introduce children to other cultures. These imaginative short animated films based on acclaimed picture books will transport viewers to faraway places. Arlene Mosel's Tikki Tikki Tembo is a cautionary tale about a little Chinese boy whose very long name complicates his rescue from a well. Mwenye Hadithi's Hot Hippo is the whimsical story of a hippo who seeks permission from "the god of Everything and Everywhere" to live in the water like the fishes. Janet Perlman's The Tender Tale of Cinderella Penguin, produced by the National Film Board of Canada, is an enchanting Cinderella story with an all-penguin cast that unfolds without dialogue. This DVD also contains three Louise Fatio's The Happy Lion, Sugith Varughese's The Magic of Anansi and Rhoda Leyer's Little Red Riding Hood. Budding readers can follow along with the optional onscreen text.
