Luka and the Fire of Life animated films

Middle School English students have a lot of required reading.  And one (as you all know!) is Salman Rushdie's Haroun and the Sea of Stories.  Mr. Rushdie is also famous for writing a lovely book called Luka and the Fire of Life.

Students at Kingston University in London were asked to create short films animating Luka's story.  The winning entry is here:

You can read the full article posted in the Guardian here.

If these films have peaked your interest in taking a further look at Luka and the Fire of Life, make sure you stop by and see Mrs. Julsonnet when you get back to school! We have a new copy in the library waiting to be checked out.
