Product Description

From Amazon

As young Tammo dreams of joining the Long Patrol--the legendary army of fighting hares that serves the Lady Cregga Rose Eyes, Ruler of Salamandastron--the brutal reality of a battle with Damug Warfang's mighty battalion of savage Rapscallions fast approaches.

Brian Jacques has proved time and time again his ability to transport readers into a world of fantasy and adventure that many writers of adult books would love to emulate. The Long Patrol certainly proves the point yet again, but distinguishes itself by being perhaps the very best of all the Redwall books so far. Relying less and less on the old, familiar Redwall characters and more and more on the ingenuity and passion of younger blood, The Long Patrol will certainly win Jacques a fresh following while continuing to delight his existing army of fans. --Susan Harrison --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-8?In this latest "Redwall" entry, Tammo, a young hare, becomes a member of a contingent of fighting forest folk who seek to defend the imperiled Redwall Abbey, led by the badger Lady Cregga Rose Eyes. Tammo and his comrades do battle against the Rapscallion foe, whose leader is the evil greatrat, Damug Warfang. Eventually the forces of good meet and clash with their evil enemies in a battle of legendary proportions. Good triumphs, of course, but not before several noble warriors have met their deaths. There is a tremendous amount of violence in this book. The characters maintain some of their animal characteristics, but it is their human qualities that make them either appealing or repugnant. The bad Rapscallions are thoroughly dishonest, traitorous, and cruel. The badgers, mice, hedgehogs, moles, and other assorted creatures that represent goodness may have foibles but they are unremittingly kind and generous. Pen-and-ink thumbnail sketches appear at the head of each chapter and strongly communicate the sense of drama. Some of the creatures, most notably the laboring class of moles, speak in an impossible, jaw-breaking dialect that may slow some readers down a bit; nevertheless, this is a worthy addition to a series that has found a definite niche among fantasy lovers. It breaks no new ground, but it is a satisfying adventure with a comforting, predictable conclusion. Its closing lines pave the way for yet another sequel.?Bruce Anne Shook, Mendenhall Middle School, Greensboro, NC

4.0 out of 5 stars ok good book Nov. 26 2003
This book is about a hare named Tammo. He wanted to be in a group of highly praised hares called the Long Patrol. The long patrol is a bunch of skilled hares that defend a huge mountain called Salamandastron; this is also where they live. A squirrel named Russa Nordry is taking Tammo to be in the Long Patrol. He gets with the Long Patrol and there is only a small group of them. They are going to Redwall abbey to help them from the big army come to the abbey. The abbey is full of peace-loving creatures such as; mice otters, and moles. Before the war the abbey has gone through problems. To find out more and what happens to Redwall, read the book.
Some things I liked about the book were that it had a lot of action and action and suspense throughout the whole book, especially at the last battle at the end of the book. Many events take place during it making it a very suspenseful book. There is many more things I liked about this book, but I can't tell you all of them.
Some bad things about the book are: it's only a type of book for people who like war. It also took a long time to pick up. There was barely any action at first, but when it picked up it got really good.
This is a good book and I recommend it to people who like suspense, war, and action.

By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A young hair named Tammo has dreamed of joining The Long Patrol ever since he was young. His father has not let him pursue his dream; for fear that he is not ready yet. That all changes whenever Nora the wanderer visits their camp-house. Tammo's mom and him get his stuff ready and send him with Nora so he can join The Long Patrol at Salamandastron. When they meet up with the Long Patrollers Tammo learns what it is like to survive in the wilderness. On the other hand the evil lord Damug and his rapscallion army are going through the wilderness killing all creatures that get in his way. It's up to Tammo and the long patrollers to protect the Redwall abbey from the evil Damug they must protect it without killing themselves.
If I were to rate this book a three. This book has a lot of action and suspense, but the plot wasn't up to the standards of my taste. I didn't think it was his best, but it was a still a good read and I suggest that people should read it.

Tamello De Fformello Tussock (Tammo for short) dreams of joining the famous Long Patrol, a group of hares who protect the land and their mountain, Salamandastron.Unfortunately, he continues to get into trouble and his father completely forbids Tammo in letting him join the Long Patrol. Tammo, with the help of his mother, runs away to Salamandastron to become one of the Long Patrol with a squirrel traveler whose name is Russa Nodrey.
Soon, they get ambushed by a group of Rapscallions, an evil bunch of rats and Russa and Tammo are captured. They are rescued by 11 Long Patrol hares.Together, they pursue the Rapscallions to Redwall.
Meanwhile, another stronger and bigger group of Rapscallions are attaking Redwall. Their leader is Damug. The 11 Long Patrol hares are hopelessly outnumbered and the peaceful Redwall creatures does not have much warrior animals.
Will they get any help from the ruler or Salamandastron who is Lady Cregga Rose Eyes and her hares? Will Redwall be captured by Rapscallions?
This book was great! I loved it from the start, though I think one part wasn't necessary. If you like this, you'll love "Lord Brocktree"!!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Long Patrol March 21 2002
By JoshC.
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I chose this book because I thought it would be a good book because I have read other books about this Redwall series. The first book I read was the Pearls of Lutra. I thought it was great so I decided to read this book. It was kind of boring at the beginning. Later, it started being fun.
The main character in this story is a young hare whose name is Tamello De Fformelo Tussock otherwise known as Tammo. He is brave,loyal, and shows compassion for anybeast that helps them or is helpless. He sometimes made some dumb mistakes. He is young and bright, and makes many friends and enemies. He also is a good sport, not like some people in this story.
The book was hard to stop reading once I got into it. Even though it is 358 pages long it took me only about 2-3 days to finish it. I thought the story plot was great, and I beleive that Brian Jacques is a good writer and has a good imagination. All his books that I have read were great. That's why his Redwall books are #1 best-selling books.
