I have read the book, but a long time ago, and I liked it a lot. I saw this series and after loving it I watched Mattimeo and Martin the Warrior. I love all three, but I was particularly impressed with Mattimeo for obvious reasons. Back on target, this is a really good series. The animation is excellent with the colours, backgrounds and character designs consistently well done, and the music especially the main theme is very beautiful. The writing is also very good, filled with humour, intelligence, sinister moments and suspense, and there is a wonderful storyline too. The characters are timeless- Matthias is a noble hero, Cluny is a very believable and menacing villain(I personally prefer Slagar but Cluny is undeniably great) and I can never get enough of Basil Stag Hare. And of course the voice acting is very well done and appropriate, with Diego Montamoros particularly impressive. Overall, a childhood favourite and well worth looking out for, whether you've read the books or not. 10/10 Bethany Cox
