Myths, legends and tales from around the world jump off the pages and straight into children's imagination in this innovative mix of animation and live action. Children help create the artwork and play all the characters, creating a fantastic mix of multi-layered pop-up book and magical stage play.
The episodes combine traditional lighting, props, humour, make-up and costumes with cutting-edge virtual studio technology to immerse the audience in some of the world's most exciting stories, some well known, others less so.
This traditional tale from Russia has been a favourite with young children for generations. In this adaptation, Lilya has a shock as she meets the strange but generous squirrel boy.
