This book is a MUST read for anyone who likes animal fiction. In my opinion this book should be read by everyone who simply can read. It is a very well constructed story with dynamic characters and a well developed plot. It not only has magical aspects it has serious human traits weaved throughout the pages. Heroism, terror, ruthlessness, kindness, and finally peace. This book would be a sophisticated addition to any character study because it teach the importance of one’s fortitude, the power of conviction, and person’s perseverance.
Redwall is part of a series of books written by Brain Jacques, who himself has an interesting story. Although this book is intended for a younger audiences, (10-14yrs old) it is not written as so. I highly recommend this book along with any other of Brain Jacques’s books.
