Ten years ago, the courageous creatures of Redwall Abbey burst onto the literary scene in Redwall, the unforgettable epic pitting the followers of Martin the Warrior against Cluny the Scourge and his evil compatriots. Since then readers across the world have come to embrace the animal heroes of Redwall. Brian Jacques created more than just characters -- he created a living, breathing world that loyal readers have come to think of as their own. And now, after eight more volumes in the Redwall series, Philomel Books is proud to offer a special illustrated Anniversary edition of the book that started it all.
Teeming with heroes and villains, riddles and mystery, sumptuous feasts and plenty of adventure, Redwall tells the story of Matthias, a humble mouse who discovers the heart of a hero when faced with the evil one-eyed rat, Cluny. Featuring a brand new jacket and seven full-color interior illustrations by renowned illustrator Troy Howell, this anniversary edition is a must-have for fans of Brian Jacques.
