    I was delighted to find this marvelous book made into an animated film - and in Canada! My husband, a refugee from the former Yugoslavia, read the book in Serbo-Croatian to our kids when they were little and we all spent wonderful hours looking at the brilliant details in the illustrations. Our kids, now teenagers, can still recite whole passages from the text. I could never understand the story fully because I don't speak the language well enough but sensed I was missing out on something special. I have waited years to fully understand and see Jezurka! ...thanks to your marvelous film, I finally can! You have done a wonderful job of bringing the story to life and I am so grateful to find your film. Congratulations! Maybe Plavi Kit will be next?! Paula, Victoria, BC
