2006 – Holka Polka

October 2006 – Holka Polka Makes Magic!

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? 

Our self-image is such an amazingly powerful thing.  And yet in spite of that power, it is so vulnerable to what others tell us about ourselves.  Are we sweet? or sour?  Are we pretty? or ugly?  And at the end of the day, does it really matter how others see us?

The story of Holka Polka is a fun journey through a magical land where witches, wizards, and royalty come together to solve a mystery:  Who cast the sleeping spell on the Prince?  Through the course of solving the mystery we meet delightful characters who come to terms with who they really are.  Wolf (who is a highly misunderstood creature who swears he doesn’t really eat people) discovers that humans can actually be quite heartwarming.  Cindy is a princess who believes she’s ugly – but she eventually realizes that what counts is what’s on the inside!  And Brenda – the sweetest witch of all – discovers an inner strength she never knew she had.  A strength that we all have in our own special ways.
