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

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.

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"!!

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.

Book Review

The novel, Long Patrol, by Brian Jacques, is a novel about a young hare named Tammo who, wants to be in a group of fighting hares called the Long Patrol, but his father won't let him. So a squirrel takes him. Little does he know that he would be facing a huge army called the Rapscallins. Tammo ends up learning more than he would in a lifetime.
The novel takes place in Mossflower Woods and Redwall Abbey. My favorite character, Tammo, had bravery, loyalty, and skill. My least favorite character was Tammo's dad.I thought he was really mean...I liked the book because it had many action parts, but it had some boring parts like at the beginning, the narrator is talking about the season and butterflies.
Sometimes the author gets your attention and sometimes not. The author gives you a bunch of details like the surroundings. The age would probably be 8 and up because it has some violence and it was in the adult isle at one bookstore. I think the book was great, but it had some boring parts so I would give it [3 stars]. In my opinion somebody else should read it.
