Have you ever noticed how different each story is? And there all so entertaining too. There's always a problem to be solved either in Redwall abbey or in Mossflower woods. But the solution does not come quickly. Better yet, the problem lingers until the last minute, and still there's plenty of time to display the solution and still make it just as interesting. Jacques never fails to make each book fascinating for the reader. Being from Liverpool, England, and speaking such a different language, makes his books unique. He manages to put some of the slang terms of Europe into lamen's terms to make every character not only amusing, but different from each other. The detail is also one of a kind. For example, have you ever noticed how good they make the food sound. You just want to jump into the book, and eat everything. But the detail is so good you almost feel like your in the book! You could be Mattimeo, Matthias, or even Slagar. The excitement never ends. Just like in the third book of the collection. It's story plot is different and unique in its own way. Whether it's the setting, the characters, or anything else it's perfect the way it was meant to be.
Each book has a secret of its own waiting to be revealed. Treat yourself by unlocking that secret. READ THIS BOOK!!! Or try any of the Redwall books. Trust me you'll enjoy every page!
The part that I liked the most was the part when Matthias battles an army with Orlando the Axe, hedgehogs, and the Guoism. Pretty good odds huh? Impossible, but they won in the end, probably because Log a Log and his shrews freed the slaves. The chains probably also served as a good weapon. Meanwhile, at Redwall Abbey, they were fighting against General Ironbeak and his birds. It wasn't a pretty sight.
At Redwall Abbey, the birds conquered everything except for Cavern Hole. Soon, the birds had 3 hostages, Cornflower and her mother, plus, baby Rollo. But then, the redwallers thought of a plan to capture the food gatherers of the birds. They soon made an exchange, but then, the birds attacked. At night, they thought of a trick and tricked the birds to thinking that a ghost is haunting them. In the end, the Redwallers won by slaying Ironbeak, this is why Mattimeo is a good book to read.
