The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

The master sorcerer is hardly out of the house when his apprentice tries his luck with a spell: Let water flow in the colourful animated world. But, oh dear, the water rushes in like mad. The goblins bring more and more of the cool liquid, it flows from bottles and showerheads and just won’t stop. Soon the apprentice threatens to sink in the floods. Can he be saved?
