Malutatxo, the world’s only white gorilla, arrives at Barcelona Zoo. While his colour draws looks and applause from the visitors, it also earns him the rejection of his fellow gorillas, who refuse to accept him as one of their own. When Malutatxo finds out that the famous Witch of the North is making her way through the city, he sets out to find her in the hope of getting a potion to make him black like any other ordinary gorilla. What Malutatxo doesn’t know is that the evil jinx Luc de Sac plans to catch him no matter what the cost, because only the heart of a white gorilla can bring an end to his bad luck. But Malutatxo isn’t alone against the enemy: the red panda Ailur and little Paula will be his inseparable friends in this fantastic adventure.

Five years after her parents’ traumatic divorce, Dixie has turned into a surly teenager whose only wish is to escape the hateful world she lives in. At school she’s laughed at for being shy and dressing like a Goth; even her best friend wants nothing to do with her. Dixie’s dad takes his daughter to the fair in an attempt to cheer her up, but Dixie has had enough and she flies off the handle. Wanting to die, the young girl runs through the woods in a storm. Suddenly, a bolt of lightning hits a tree and it crashes down on top of her. On wakening, she realises she’s been buried in the cemetery and is now... a zombie! The young girl soon discovers that life among the living dead isn’t much better. Luckily, or maybe not, there’s a way to stop being a zombie and go back to her life as a mortal.
