Also by Brian Jacques. Mossflower country shimmered gently in a peaceful haze, bathing delicately at each dew-laden dawn, blossoming through high sunny noontides, languishing in each crimsontinted twilight that heralded the soft darkness of June nights.

Such praise, and from the champion fisher herself, an otter! Tim and Tess, the twin Churchmouse babes, felt Matthias’s strong arm muscles and giggled aloud in admiration. He helped to serve them two portions of apple and mint ice cream. Such nice little twins. Was it only three months ago that he had helped Sister Stephanie to get them over tail rickets?

Illustrated by Gary Chalk. Gonff quickly called out in a passable weasel-voice imitation, ‘Big fat robber!’ The two weasels turned furiously upon each other. Late autumn winds sighed fitfully round the open gatehouse door, rustling brown gold leaves in the fading afternoon. Bella of Brockhall snuggled deeper into her old armchair by the fire. Through half-closed eyes she watched the small mouse peering around the doorway at her. ‘Come in, little one, and close the door. Big fat robber, eh. Take that!’ ‘Ouch! You sneaky toad, you take this!’ The weasels thwacked away madly at each other with their spearhandles.

Mossflower lay deep in the grip of midwinter beneath a sky of leaden gray that showed tinges of scarlet and orange on the horizon. A cold mantle of snow draped the landscape, covering the flatlands to the west. Snow was everywhere, filling ditches, drifting high against hedgerows, making paths invisible, smoothing the contours of earth in its white embrace.

The Redwall series by Brian Jaques was basically The literary staple of my childhood, and Mossflower will always be one of my favorites. The writing is fun for all ages - it's easy to read, but doesn't dumb itself down so much that adults won't enjoy it. The characters are fun and unique, and the worldbuilding that went into this series is incredible. Mossflower is a prequel to the first book, "Redwall," and while I would suggest reading Redwall first, it definitely stands alone, as do most of the books in the series. If nothing else, his descriptions of food WILL make you hungry. I spent so many hours as a child attempting to recreate the recipes he described....
This series is the best read I have found in the last 15 or 20 years!

it has drama, it has suspense, it has action, it has sadness, it has happiness, it has humor, there are so many things that this book has going for it! yes it may be classified as a children's book, but I am not the only adult to read & enjoy & be hooked on this series of books.

From page one, it grabs your attention & it never lets go till the end...but then it is really not the end because when you begin to read the next book, it too, gets you hooked from Page 1.

I highly recommend this book & the series(22 books in all) to anyone, adult or younger, who likes a great story of how the hero saves the day with his charm, his humor & his bravery.
I'm listeningreading to these in publication order, so this book two. I enjoyed the Audible presentation. My one critique is that the audio could use some remastering to equalize voice levels. A few of the voice actors were far more quiet than the others, thus listening required quite a bit of volume adjustment.

I do hope Audible works on filling in the availability gaps within the Redwall series line.
I bought this as a gift for a little boy. I had already bought him Book 1 which he enjoyed very much. My two boys read every one of Brian Jacques books in the Redwall Series and I believe there were 20+. I started reading Book 1, 2, 3 and so on....to them before they could read and over the years they started reading on their own. You cannot beat Brian Jacques and his Redwall Books for storytelling genius, excitement and glorious detail for kids of all ages!
The Redwall series of books is well written and perfect for both young and young-at-heart readers. It’s a fantasy set full of adventures of good versus evil, coming of age, finding bravery and friendship, reveling in poetry and song, and feasting as if at the end of a ten season famine! Brian Jacques crafted wonderful friends and heroes ate Redwall Abbey, and you’ll enjoy meeting them again and again!
This is a wonderful story about a misfit mouse. He and his friends fight for their home, have many adventures. The big question is Does Mattias find his place in life? I thoroughly enjoyed this book as well as the rest of the series.
I'm not kidding, this book is really good! I don't care how old you are, I believe you'll enjoy this one. Easy to read, flows very smoothly the entire time, loveable characters, vivid scenery, and cowardly villians. I really don't know how they can say give this book a reading age of 9-12.. That almost made me not want to read it, but I'm sure glad that I did and look forward to reading the next one.
My favorite part of the book? It'd be hard to say, but I'd have to go with the battle between Martin and Queen Tsarmina. There were lots of other great scenes too though. One question I have is why didn't Gingivere ever help in the fight against his evil sister?? He would have been a great help in the fighting besides being able to carry Abbess Germaine quickly back to the injured Martin. I guess he's just a pussycat though.
I highly reccomend this book along with Redwall. To anyone.
My son loved the first six Redwall books he read before he aged out of Middle Grade reading. I am buying the series in hardcover so I have them to read with my someday grandchildren.
