Redwall by Brian Jacques - hardcvr
Hardcover format. Highly recommended! A great way to start young readers (or old!) on this epic series of fantasy adventures.
The book that inspired a legend—the first novel in the bestselling saga of Redwall.
The book that kicked off the phenomenon is now reissued with brand new jacket art in honor of its 20th anniversary. Readers will delight anew in the thrilling adventures of young Matthias as he discovers the hero within. Brian Jacques' classic tale of peaceful creatures forced to band together in battle has never felt more timely or full of life.
Welcome to Mossflower Wood, where the gentle mice have gathered to celebrate a year of peace and abundance. All is well…until a sinister shadow falls across the ancient stone abbey of Redwall. It is rumored that Cluny is coming—Cluny, the terrible one-eyed rat and his savage horde—Cluny, who has vowed to conquer Redwall Abbey! The only hope for the besieged mice lies in the lost sword of the legendary Martin the Warrior. And so begins the epic quest of a bumbling young apprentice—a courageous mouse who would rise up, fight back…and become a legend himself.
“The medieval world of Redwall Abbey—where gallant mouse warriors triumph over evil invaders—has truly become the stuff of legend.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer
