Hi Charlotte! Yes, I remember this too - my children read the books when they were younger!
I never read the books. I've onnly just watched the first minute of the first episodes as i stumbled across it one day accidently. Can't remember what I was watching. Its good so far though
Yeah, I have fond memories of reading the first book on a horrendous 8-hour plane trip to Canada this one time.I like your Mouse character idea, it adds other meanings and possiblities to the words you have been given.To be honest when I said that Redwall is a bit 'naff' it's because the actual story and characters themselves could of all been done with humans/any other type of animal. The characters being rodents was a bit of pointless gimmick when you think about it.I suppose that's something for you to avoid, make sure that you're simply not replacing a human character with a mouse like-for-like. Make the fact that your main character is a mouse integral to the world and story you create. If that makes sense? Though I think you're doing that anyway from what I've seen. :)
Thanks. the other thing I'm finding about Redwall (I'm actualy watching it) is there's not much of a plot. Ok there's thsi bad rat who is trying ot take over the abbey, but other than that it's pretty much the same.
Yes, though it's probably a case of them having to adapt the hefty novel for TV, the book had a lot of side and back story that sort of made the world interesting.I unfortunately have been struck down by a case of exploding ear syndrome, so won't be about today but Interim Crit today/tommorow? Enjoy!
Oh ok.....thanks :)
