Publisher Comments:

Welcome to the captivating world of Redwall!

It is the Summer of the Late Rose, and the mice of Mossflower Wood are gathered at the ancient stone abbey of Redwall, celebrating a year of peace and abundance. But a shadow has fallen across the abbey, for it is rumored that Cluny is coming — Cluny, the terrible one-eyed rat, whose vow is to conquer Redwall!

The woodland creatures rush to a desperate defense. But what can peaceloving mice do against Cluny and his army? If only they had the sword of Martin the Warrior. But its hiding place is long forgotten, even by the wise old mouse Methuselah. It is his young apprentice Matthias who sets out to find the legendary sword and becomes a most unlikely hero...

Review:

"[A]n animal world as compelling as that of The Wind in the Willows....This epic adventure contains elements of all grand quests, with heroic archetypes that will keep fans of Tolkien and King Arthur tales engaged to the final battle." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Mr. Jacques has woven an energetic, if somewhat simple-minded, fantasy....Redwall is both a credible and an ingratiating place, one to which many young readers will doubtless cheerfully return." Selma Lanes, The New York Times

Review:

"Provocative and enticing. From start to finish, readers and listeners will cheer the dwellers of Redwall." Booklist

Review:

"Rich and thought-provoking." School Library Journal

Review:

"Redwall is a fine work, literate, witty, filled with the excitement of genuine storytelling....Extraordinary." Lloyd Alexander, author of the Newbery Award-winning The High King

While children these days grow up with the Harry Potter series, I had Redwall. But while Brian Jacques' adventure series is mainly geared toward children, adults shouldn't steer away from them because of it. This book, the first in the series, was originally written for blind children, so the writing itself is generally very descriptive, enabling the reader to easily picture everything that's going on. Each story in the series is an endless battle between good and evil, and the creatures of Redwall Abbey (a neutral, non-religious community) always have an endless amount of energy to do what's right. Great swashbuckling series full of swordfights and plot-twists that would get child, or adult, excited.
