With his big brother, Kolo learns to swallow a scorpion without being bitten, to make escape the eagle or the cobra, never far. Together, the meerkats fight against the danger. Their strategy? Stand side by side and stand on their hind legs, bristly hairs to be taller than they are.

Why is it good?

  • The story of Kolo, told by Guillaume Canet, it is the initiation into adulthood and the struggle of the small against the giants without forgetting the universal values ​​such as courage, solidarity and sense of family. A touching story that brings these funny little animals to the black mask of the human species and that will please your children. Be careful though, some scenes may scare toddlers, especially when the eagle is attacking the meerkat family.
