|THE STORY The series takes place in Africa, where Kassai was found in the bush when he was just a baby. He was raised by lions, and then adopted by Bintou who takes him back to her village. The people of Bintou's village have had a spell cast upon them by the Evil God Togoum. Kassai has been chosen to free his people from this curse. To achieve this, he must reconstitute the statue of Koorie, Goddess of Earth, whose pieces have been scattered across the continent. For every mission, Kassai must leave his village to find one magical missing piece and bring it back to Koorie. This exciting journey of treasure hunts pits Kassai against untold dangers: hostile tribes, wild animals and, above all, Togoum's traps. Fortunately, Kassai is not alone for this great adventure: Leuk, a comical rabbit, and Marana, a beautiful princess, will help him - as well as the Nommos, Gods of the Good. At the end of the series, Kassai frees his people, solves the mystery of his origins and marries the lovely Marana. THE CHARACTERS KASSAI is brave and intelligent, and he has been chosen by the wise man Ogotem to face Togoum. He has a sense of justice, but he is young and sensitive. LEUK is a boastful and mischievous hare. Despite being a chronic complainer and sometimes a bit of a coward, Leuk is a dependable companion, and knows Africa like the back of his... paw! PRINCESS MARANA is a beautiful young girl in a strange predicament: she is cursed to transform into a gazelle from sunrise to sunset… But, this curse is sometimes a blessing in disguise for Kassai: it enables Marana to communicate with the wild animals they encounter in their adventures. Kassai, Leuk and Marana will have to outsmart the traps laid by KAKOU who dreams of taking Kassai's place as the chosen one. Kassai's rival is always accompanied by his warthog sidekick.
