Book Description

October 1996 Redwall
"Mice are my heroes because, like children, mice are little and have to learn to be courageous and use their wits." --Brian Jacques
     Welcome to Redwall Abbey. Inside its enormous doors, mice live in peace, helping those in need and throwing epic feasts for the great and the good of Mossflower Woods. But outside a grave threat is gathering. An army of evil rats led by a vicious, one-eyed warlord, is on its way.
     Matthias is just one little mouse but he knows it'll take more than stones and mouse-sized arrows to keep the rats at bay. Enlisting the help of a military hare, wild sparrows and argumentative stoats, Matthias sets out to defend his freedom, his friends, and the abbey he calls home.

Review

"Not since Roald Dahl have children filled their shelves so compulsively" The Times "He is a wonderful storyteller, immersed in his own kingdom" Guardian "A constant hit ever since Martin the Warrior first took up arms against his foes" Scotsman "There are quests and riddles; cunning treachery and chivalric derring-do; and, in a feature that became a hallmark of the entire series, groaning boards spread with sumptuous feasts, lovingly described" New York Times "The combination of a completely imagined world full of domestic detail...with a strongly created mythology to underpin them, big-scale plots and Jacques's rolling prose quickly turned Redwall into a leading international brand in children's books" Guardian --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Redwall Series April 21 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
All of the books by Brian J. have been absolutely thrilling from beginning to end.A lot of other books that I have read, have been boring at the start and gradually get more interesting. However, Brian J.'s books are excitement the whole way through. If you are considering reading these books, I would highly recommend them and read them in Chronological order.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREATEST BOOKS EVER! Dec 20 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I would recommend that anyone read the Redwall books. I've read them all, some more than once, and I can't wait for the Ledgend of Luke to come out. I think there should be many, many more than the present 11. I think there should be more like 111. I'd read them all, too. One of my best friends is as obsessed with them as I am. She can read one in less than a day. I can read one in a couple of days myself. I especially like squirrel archers, otters, hares, and badgers. If you haven't read these books, please, READ THEM! They are exciting, interesting, full of action, and just plain good! Out of 10, I give them 11.
5.0 out of 5 stars Brian Jacques' Redwall series is amazing. June 10 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have read every one of Mr. Jacques' books and I am telling you there is nothing better. His unique storytelling techniques are excellent. His "world" is full of life, fun, imagination and great adventure. Every last one of his (so far) 10 books, from Redwall to The Long Patrol are masterpieces. His books are about woodland type of creatures who fight tyranny and evil creatures. There is everything in them. Joyfulness, Greif, Tragedy, Happiness, etc... Lets just put that movies can not compare to Jacques' amazing story telling. If you choose to not read them, then you do not know what you are missing.
5.0 out of 5 stars great Feb. 24 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have enjoyed these books. They are full of sadness, happiness,adventure, comedy, and just a little bit of love.The Bellmaker is about an old mouse and his friends trying to find his warriormouse daughter because he fears she is in trouble. Martin the Warrior is about a mouse fighting against slavery. He is determined to slay the Tyrant that held him in bondage. I read Salamandastron such a long time ago I really don't remember what it is about but you can be sure there is alot of adventure in it as with all of Brian Jacques book.
5.0 out of 5 stars This one is the best July 31 2002
By Jared Garrett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Martin the Warrior is by far the best of the stunningly successful and wonderful series. This one will move you to tears and make you grin like a fool. Martin's unbending determination to see justice done is inspiring and done with unequivocating sincerity. Jacques does not hold back.
If you are just starting the series, you could happily start with this one. In Redwall Chronology, it is the first book. So it is a good place to start.
Read this book and you will become an addict and possibly a better person.
