Read to your child

This is a great book for any age, so I highly recommend you read aloud it to children who are not quite ready to start reading chapter books on their own.


this book was SOOOO good! i loved it so much! out of the three in the series that i have read, this one was my favorite

great book

I really enjoyed this book. Easy read.

Good Book

I liked this book because it was very action packed and humorous at times. It was also sad because Methuselah died in the end of the book. I hope you enjoy it.


I ordered this book because I have seen the the movie. It is funny. I like Basil and Cluny in weird.


A very strong series opener. You will love it

You'll be hooked!

The mice and woodland animals of Redwall love peace and good eating, but they always seem to get drawn into violent conflict and ancient mysteries. The earliest books Jacques wrote tend to be the best because the characters seem to have the biggest challenges to overcome. Even though the books center around talking animals, there is nothing prissy about them. Like Watership Down, the Redwall books are classics that can be enjoyed by both boys and girls. The audiobook versions are also fun to listen to, especially since most of them are read by Brian Jacques himself.
