What's Redwall About

Publisher Summary

It has been ten years since readers around the world discovered the amazing creatures of Mossflower Wood. Ten years since they met the wicked one-eyed rat Cluny the Scourge and his battle-seasoned horde who vowed to conquer peace-loving Redwall Abbey.

The question in this epic first volume is resoundingly clear: What can the peace-loving mice do to defend themselves against Cluny and his army of rats? If only they had the sword of Martin the Warrior, they might have a chance. But the legendary weapon has long been forgotten — except, that is, by the bumbling young apprentice Matthias, who becomes the unlikeliest of heroes.

Teeming with riddles, humor, unforgettable characters, and high bounding adventure, the Redwall epic, now in nine volumes, has become an internationally beloved classic. Here, then, illustrated by fine artist Troy Howell, is an anniversary edition of the book that started it all: Redwall.

Let me be clear: I was not a kid who loved all fantasy young adult literature. I liked fantasy in small doses, and especially avoided the worlds of “high fantasy.” But take those fantasy novels and make all the characters cute little rodents, and I somehow found it more palatable. As a fourth grader, I really enjoyed reading Redwall. I didn’t read many more books in the series, but it drew me in and kept me engaged right to the end.
