I was only 8 or so when Truckers was broadcast on telly. I'd read the book already and was looking forward to the TV show, but I'm sorry to say it wasnt as good as I thought it'd be. It was SO much better.
This is an extremely faithful adaptation of Terry Pratchett's wonderful novel. They've captured the characters perfectly and it's impossible to imagine anyone but Debra Gillet as Grimma, the world's first feminist nome.
I would recommend this to everyone. Kids will love the wondeful stop-motion animation, and many adults will get a kick out of Terry Pratchett's hilarious dialogue and his devilish humour
