  • This reminds me about Kirikou and the Sorceress [imdb.com] (see also kirikou.net [kirikou.net]), a wonderful french animation movie, that I bought to my kids incidentally. It's based on old West African tales. Great plot, great music, wonderful drawings, I recommend it to kids and parents. But in USA, it's rated for matures audiences, while being perfectly OK for kids in Europe. The reason ? Characters are topless, men and women, as this reflects the traditional way of clothing in West Africa.
  • It's one of my favourite Pratchett's of recent years (Maurice is current top of that chart though). His handling of the horde has always been fantastic. Be careful around the ending though, if William doesn't see it coming it could be upsetting.

    Gods! It's full of dragons!
  • One of the many things that I love about Pratchett is his subtlety. He uses a lot of "adult" humor, but never in a crass way (as I am wont to do, I'm afraid). I have all of his Discworld series and am currently reading "Good Omens", which he cowrote. It's a hilarious book. Armageddon has been scheduled, but the demon Crowley has unfortunately misplaced the anti-Christ. Good fun for all -- particularly those who may be a bit cynical about religion.
