Does anyone remember this fantastic show that was on TV in 2004-2005 (only 2 series)

Marnie doesn't know it yet, but it's her fate to be touched by dangerous and irresistable magic. She's about to set off on an epic quest, in search of an alchemist's Book of Forbidden Knowledge, lost a millennium ago in the borders of Scotland.

A perilous adventure with the Shoebox Zoo!

Oh my gosh I remember this! I used to really like it at the time, and I got really upset when the wolf kept turning sides until <SPOILER> at the end of the series.

And then didn't they make a new one - I swear there was a horse in it too...


But yes, I quite liked it at the time!

Just had a look on wikipedia - the wolf returns at some point, and <SPOILERS> in the penultimate episode.
But I liked it at the time and it's interesting to re-discover it all again!
