If you don't want to read the books, watch the animated series. Check YouTube. The hero is a mouse, named Matthias. Read the books or watch the series with your children or by yourself. I watched it by myself. It was fantastic!! My daughter read some of the books. She said they were fantastic! She likes to read! Fine by me. :)
