        Love everything about it. My son enjoys the music, as do I. There are multiple scripts (tear out), the musical score, the two versions of the musical CDs (backing tracks and production tracks). Excellent kit for fun or to produce the performance yourself.

        A really good musical, taking children through different cultures. They love singing it!

        I bought this show for my school last year. I had seen it at another school. It was easy to do, the children loved the story and the songs (one or two I would perhaps change)and many positive comments from the parents. The scenery was minimal and costumes easy to organise. The whole school was involved. I would definately reccomend it..
