THE SNOW QUEEN – The evil queen of the snowflakes travels across the world with the snow, and kidnaps Kai to her icy palace. She will only set him free if he can spell out ‘eternity’ with pieces of ice in her palace.
ALI BABA – Ali Baba the poor woodcutter over hears a gang of thieves’ utter the magical words ‘Open Sesame’ which astonishingly opens the door to a wondrous cave filled with treasure. He journey’s in to discover more, but unfortunately he is not alone…
