This is an animated fairytale featuring the voices of Dustin Hoffman, Robbie Coultrane, Sigourney Weaver, annoying James Nesbitt get off my telly with your Yellow Pages adverts.

Hero Desperaux journeys around magical locations as he tries to save Princess Pea from "animal enemies" and "human foes". Desperaux is a mouse, incidentally.

You can upgrade weapons and objects, and the Universal Pictures people are apparently are impressed with Brash's "attention to detail".

"Whether charmed by the book or newly introduced to the characters via the film, children of all ages can expand on their love for Despereaux with this title," said Mitch Davis, Brash boss, like a robot.

"We're excited and proud to be translating this classic into an exciting, engaging and enriching game."
