When Redwall was published in 1987 it catipulted author Brian Jacques to international stardom. And small wonder! This enthralling tale is jam-packed with the things we long for in a great adventure: danger, laughter, hairbreath excapes, tragedy, mystery, a touch of wonder, a truly despicable villain, and a hero we can take to heart.
is Matthias, a young mouse who must rise above his fears and failures
to save his friends at Redwall Abbey. The villain is Cluny the Scourage,
one of the most deliciously despicable rats of all time. The
unforgettable cast of supporting characters includes the stalwart badger
Constance, an irrepressible hare named Basil Stag Hare, and the elderly
wisemouse Brother Methuselah.
But most of all there is Matthias,
seeking his true destiny in a journey that will lead through danger and
despair to true wisdom. From Goodreads.
This was way better than I expected. I just didn't like the idea of mice and rats as main characters but it worked. I really liked Matthias, a clumsy but very brave mouse and it was a very good description of the horrible warlord Cluny the Scourage. I have the next two books and will definitely continue the series as some point.
