The DVD series on "early Redwall" is great viewing for young and old (I'm a granddad). We, that's grandma and I, were able to view it with grandchildren. We both enjoyed the journey of the story, and interaction with the children during and between each episode. It is great value as a "starter" into reading the series for children 8-11 - helps build the overall narrative (and sub-narrative) plot(sss) ... Please don't use it as a substitute for reading - as it's an appetiser and integrator to for whole of Jacques great series of books.
