When Redwall was published in 1987 it catipulted author Brian Jacques to international stardom. And small wonder! This enthralling tale is jam-packed with the things we long for in a great adventure: danger, laughter, hairbreath excapes, tragedy, mystery, a touch of wonder, a truly despicable villain, and a hero we can take to heart.

That hero is Matthias, a young mouse who must rise above his fears and failures to save his friends at Redwall Abbey. The villain is Cluny the Scourage, one of the most deliciously despicable rats of all time. The unforgettable cast of supporting characters includes the stalwart badger Constance, an irrepressible hare named Basil Stag Hare, and the elderly wisemouse Brother Methuselah.

But most of all there is Matthias, seeking his true destiny in a journey that will lead through danger and despair to true wisdom. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alflor Aalto | 2/17/2014

    " If you are a furry writer, or if you simply enjoy great anthropomorphic fiction, you owe it you yourself to read "Redwall," as well as at least four or five of its sequels. People can complain about the later repetitiveness of the series, but no one can argue that Jacques knew how to write and to craft worlds where his brilliant characters lived. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary | 2/7/2014

    " When I first started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. The story is really engrossing. It's basically an animal fable. Although I liked the subsequent books in the series they start to follow a formula, and the characters feel determined by their species. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 soccergirl | 2/5/2014

    " Read this before but i got bored so i'm reading it again!!! it's a very unique book! Read it sometime! "

    " The first book in one of my favorite series follows a young mouse in a great adventure about rising to greatness when you don't know if you have it within yourself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ursula | 1/1/2014

    " I actually read these books >10 years ago and I really liked them. I can't say my opinion of talking animals would be the same now, but these books would be a great read for someone in grade school. "
