|The Fool of the World And The Flying Ship [VHS]
Lowest new price: $193.89
List price: $14.95
This delightful, magnificently animated Russian folktale tells the story of a peasant boy who wins the hand of a beautiful princess with a little help from his uniquely talented friends. Pyotr and his friends journey to the Czar's palace, where they successfully complete three impossible tasks and prove that the most humble of people can defeat power and greed. Parents' Choice Award
In this excellent retelling of a Russian folk tale, young Pyotr proves that nice guys can finish first if they have tenacity and good friends on their side. Pyotr is but a woodcutter when his lazy brothers take the family's lean savings and go off to answer the king's call for a flying ship in exchange for his daughter's hand in marriage. When they fail to return, the humble Pyotr sets off to find them and finds a magical flying ship instead. So it's off to the palace, picking up a boatload of unusually talented hitchhikers along the way. The king and his evil adviser hatch a plan to assign the peasant troupe a series of impossible tasks so they can banish them and take the ship. The story is told in stop-motion animation with detailed sets and exquisitely designed models who are neither cute nor scary. The superb writing and low-key narration by David Suchet no doubt helped earn this installment of the public television series Long Ago and Far Away an Emmy Award. Ages 3 and older. --Kimberly Heinrichs
