Book Review: Redwall by Brian Jacques

Full of old-fashioned heroism and hordes of villains, Brian Jacques’s Redwall is an exciting read at any age. Its enormous cast of characters delightfully introduces the reader to the world of Redwall Abbey, Mossflower Woods, and beyond. This is a world inhabited by animals: loyal mice, villainous rats, a dangerous but trustworthy badger, and a militaristic and always-famished hare, just to name a few. Our main hero is Matthias, a young Redwall mouse who must find the warrior within himself in order to save his beloved home from Cluny the Scourge and his vast army.
