School of Magical Animals


Ida’s school is a unique place. Children can meet magical animals there and become their friends. What will be the result of the girl’s meeting with the fox Rabbat?


Ida has a hard time in her new class, but her teacher knows how to make the girl feel better at school. A bit of magic will be needed – Ida will make friends with a fox, and her shy friend Benni will have a turtle for a companion. The animals have special powers: they can talk to humans, do tricks, and they are always eager to play. In the meantime, objects keep disappearing at school. The thief’s characteristic feature is a big, yellow smile. The girl and her new friends will try to find the thief! Without her friends – including the animal friends – Ida wouldn’t be able to solve the riddle and finding the suspect on her own would simply be impossible.
