Second reading 15 years apart. Dialect can be difficult, worthy subject of animal research use & misuse. It helps to favor talking animals & their possible point of view - also helps to know terrain of Lakes District for visualization. An all time favorite of min.

This book is definitely NOT for children. The video has a PG-13 rating which I would have to question. While it has cuddly animated dogs on the DVD case, as an adult, I quit watching after the second human death which resulted from interaction with a dog. Sick!

I don't know how graphic the book is, but I would suggest that parents read it first, and then make a judgement on how suitable it is for their own children.
