Product Description

From Amazon

Preparations for the feast for the Summer of the Golden Rain are underway at Redwall Abbey, and young Mattimeo's mother sets him to work with the other inhabitants. His father, Mathius, is the guardian of Redwall Abbey and it is this fact that puts the young Mattimeo in danger, as the evil Slagar the Fox plots to kidnap him in a bid to shake the very foundations of the Abbey and its inhabitants.

Rip-roaring adventure at its very best, Mattimeo is one of the exquisitely executed and totally bewitching tales in the best-selling Redwall series. Brian Jacques, with his masterly use of language and enviable talent for descriptive prose that transports the reader to the very heart of Redwall, magically weaves an epic tale breathtaking in proportion and design. Utterly addictive, Mattimeo is packed with so much color, passion, fury, and love that it will leave readers desperate for more. --Susan Harrison --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Among the woodland animals absconded from Redwall Abbey by Slagar the fox is Mattimeo, son of the warrior mouse Matthias. PW said, "This final book in the Redwall trilogy is a truly thrilling conclusion to a swashbuckling, heroic adventure. The realistically drawn characters are full of personality." Ages 10-14.

I'm doing a report on the book Mattimeo. It was published in1990. The aothor is Brian Jacques. He is one of my insparations to write. I think that he is one of the best writers in the world. The main characters are Mattimeo and his dad Mathias.Mathias is the Redall warior.Redwall is an abbey in a country called Mossflower. Mossflower is a big forest, and all of the creatures in it are characters.Mattimeo and Mathias are mice, but that is only one type creature. there are moles, rats,squirles, otters and many more. This wonderful novel is about an evi fox named Slagar the Cruel taking revenge on Mathias by kidnapping Mattimeo and other young redwallers to sell them as slaves, and lure Mathias out of Redwall so he can kill him slowly and paifully to show him the torture he once went through. Slagar had once battled against Mathias, and Mathias won.Mathias had burned Slagars face into a crinkled mess. It looked so horrible that he wore a mask over it. After Slagar kills Mathias by burying him alive Mattimeo solmely swears that he will kill Slagar. But is Mathias really dead?...No!Friends dig him out and join the journey. So they make new friends, and have no idea of what adventures they will go through together. After everything they all get home safe.I think the moral of this story is to never give up, and they learn to use what they have while they have it, and to give respect while they can.Mattimeo changes by becoming braver,stronger, and more obedient to his father Mathias who changes by giving more respect to Mattimeo. Mattimeo ,thebook, is one of fifteen stupendis tales of the series of Redwall.I thought this book was so wonderous because it had so many types of books put into one.It had comedy,a lot of action, and just a bit of sadness. I thought it was so good that I wish it was fifty times longer.I absolutely loved the book Mattimeo.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Book June 2 2002
By Shepen
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Mattimeo is the second of Brian Jacques' books I have read, (the first being Redwall) and I have to say I enjoyed Mattimeo more, though they are both wonderful, 5 star examples of children's literature. I think Slagar was a much more convincing adversary: a minor character from one of the previous books with real motives for kidnapping the Abbey children. (Don't get me wrong, Cluny from 'Redwall' was a good villian, but he was one-dimensional, he had no real past or motivation other than the usual "because he's evil and crazy.") The only thing I didn't like was the subplot with General Ironbeak, it felt too much like a rehash of the first book, but with much weaker foes.
Overall this is a good book for children and adults, especially If you like books like 'The Hobbit.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Anthropomorphic Story, Bryan Jacques May 14 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read Mattimeo by Brian Jacques. This anthropomorphic story was about a fox, who is a kidnapper, and he kidnapped some little animals, including the warrior of Redwall's son. He made them into slaves, and took them to a place called Malkariss, and set them to work on a statue. Meanwhile, some rescuers from Redwall come to rescue them and are successful. At Redwall, some birds attack the Redwallers, but they are beaten back. Then the rescuers return. One is the hero of the story, the warrior of Redwall, Matthias. Everyone at Redwall has a big feast and everyone exchanges tales.
I recommend this book for anyone who likes fast-paced, exciting, and suspensful books, like in the part where Matthias and his friends are fighting all of the rats.
I thought Matthias was cool because he used a sword, unlike his five friends, and with them, defeated seven hundred rats.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly Brilliant!!!!! May 11 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Here is another work of art done by one of the most amazing artist. Mattimeo , for those of you who don't know is the son of the hero from the first book Mathias. When the redwall abbey is having their feast a slave driver gang shows up in disguise. Not knowing this the knid redwallers let them in. When no one is looking the slave drivers slip some sleeping potion into everyones drink. Once everyone is asleep they steal all of the children including Mattimeo. The parents wake up to find out the horrible news and yet another quest begins. I don't want to give any more of the story away so I am going to stop there. What will become of the slave and the slave drivers. What will become of redwall. Read this amazing book and find out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mattimeo May 9 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
For those who have read Redwall, this book will be all the better for you.Being reunited with your old friends gives you unsurrpressed joy, and seeing them with their children fills you with a sence of great pride. ( Though seeing the animals who were quite young in the previous book having children was quite awkward at first )This story is exellent and I rate it accordingly.
Few things can happen to Redwall that is worst than this. First, The young ones are stolen from the Abbey, And when Matthias, Jess and Basil, along with some new found friends, whose young ones have also been stolen, are gone, some other uninvited guests visit the Abbey. General Ironbeak and his birds from the Northlands invade Redwall, at the time when most of the fighting beasts are gone searching. I would tell you more but this book but it is very complicated and wonderful. Another story for the Faithful Redwallers who adore these books and Brian Jacques.
