Books are everywhere in Meena's house - in cupboards, drawers, and even piled up the stairs! Her parents love to read, but Meena never even opens a book! When her cat Max accidentally knocks down a huge stack of books, heroes, heroines, and animals with attitude come to life and pandemonium reigns. Meena finds a unique solution to get the characters back in the books, and nothing, as they say, is the same after that. Based on the story by Manjusha Pawagi. The Girl Who Hated Books is part of the NFB's Talespinners 2 collection. Written by Anonymous

the cat
10 January 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Charming animation.Useful message. Seductive story, full of humor and irony and moral lesson. But, sure, the lead character is the cat. Changing the behavior of a girl, provoking a real storm, proposing a lovely story . All so...French.
