Summary

Summary

Visit the magical animal world of Brian Jacques in this thrilling prequel to Redwall. Long before the abbey of Redwall is built, the land is known simply as Mossflower, a lush woodland and happy home to all. That is, until Tsarmina, a cruel wildcat queen who demands obedience and offers the castle's dungeon to those who defy her, comes along. Brian Jacques' tales of courageous heroes and deliciously hateful villains have captivated countless readers.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Superb…truly captures the finest in storytelling tradition and combines it with the ultimate in upbeat, catch-your-breath adventure…Stunning landscapes, brilliant characterizations, masterly plots, and a wicked sense of humor unite this epic tale of derring-do and the triumph of good over evil, making it one of the most addictive and memorable books that anyone is ever likely to read.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“Rousingly old-fashioned…More important than the outcome of the story, where good triumphs over evil, are the characters: baby hedgehogs Ferdy and Coggs, doing their valiant best to become warriors; the kindly Gingivere, who finds his heart’s joy as a farmer; Lady Amber, the squirrel Chief and her band of archers; Chibb, the robin who will spy for anyone as long as he is paid in candied chestnuts. Martin’s heroics pale in comparison to the acts of his fellow-fighters, so colorful are their escapades.” Publishers Weekly
“All of the characters, good and evil alike, come fully alive. Jacques has the true fantasy writer’s ability to create a wholly new and believable world, down the last details of food, drink, and local dialect.” School Library Journal
