When the outlaw clan of foxes, weasels, stoats, and other vermin led by vicious ferret Sawney Rath kidnaps an infant otter of Redwall to serve as their Taggerung—a fierce warrior who no beast can stand against in battle—they have no idea what they’re getting into. Trained in all the deadly arts and able to outfight, outrun, and outthink any clanbeast, the Taggerung grows up with only one slight peculiarity: he refuses to kill! What’s a vermin clan to do when its greatest warrior is too pure of heart to live among them? Download and start listening now!

    School Library Journal

  • “Readers of all ages who enjoy fantasy can happily lose themselves in Redwall’s cozy world, where they’ll enjoy zestful fights, lengthy descriptions of scrumptious food, and endearing animals speaking in thick dialects.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Richard Houchin | 2/12/2014

    " The Redwall books ought to be a perennial children's favorite. They are simple and formulaic, but it's a good formula! Jacques has a real gift for dialect, and culinary descriptions. I credit an early fascination with the Redwall stories for my modern-day feats of gastronomic delight. "Salad anna scone!" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Caroline | 2/11/2014

    " This almost seemed to be a companion to Outcast of Redwall in that it's an otter raised in a vermin culture (whereas Outcast is a vermin raised in Redwall). It was fun, but really nothing all that special and further rams in the "genetics determines everything" idea that Jacques seems to be a victim of. "

    " A river otter being raised by vermin?! It's amazing that Taggerung (aka Deyna) actually stayed on that long!! "

    " Some of the slyest characters ever! "
