When Mary Green and her cousins, William and Alice, spend their Christmas holidays in Wales' Golden Valley it is not long before they encounter the 400-year-old magician Stephen Walker. Stephen asks them to help him save the rare species of badger that populates the valley, they agree, and thus a spell-binding adventure begins.

There is also a very heavy-handed subplot involving a thoroughly demoralised girl from a broken home who hates her father's new girlfriend and plots with the evil apprentice to harm the potential step-mother's unborn baby. This part of the story is hammered home relentlessly and is at times very nasty, thoroughly getting in the way of the good bits and spoiling, my family fel, the really grand tale of magic and adventure that surrounds it. The unhappy young girl is just too nasty, too sloppy, too disagreeable to be very likable while the step mom-to-be is too nice to dislike (and why make her just a girlfriend, rather than a wife?). At a certain point it seemed the makers wanted the young unhappy girl to be covered in some sort of holy glory at being from a divorced home - aside from being too heavy-handed, our family just started wondering where the magician had got to.
There is also a very violent scene involving some stereotyped local yobs hunting down endangered badgers for sport with viscious dogs - again, another scene both out of place and unsuitable for young children.Read more ›
