The book that inspired a legend—the first novel in the bestselling saga of Redwall.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love ALL the Redwall books! I loved the books, and the cartoon series! These books made up my youth. I have read all of them and plan to re-read them for eternity. My favourite of all was Triss. Which was also, although out of sequence, my first ever Redwall novel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Magnificent Book...sniff Redwall is the magnificent story of the siege of Redwall. It's exciting (after the first few chapters), absorbing and brilliantly written. The plot's great, the characters are excellent, and the story is overall wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Redwall- a classic in books for sure I read Redwall. It was the first I read out of the Redwall searies. All I have to say is, AMAZING. It contains adventure and much more. But not for the type looking for comedy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Redwall - Excellent read I just finished reading "Redwall" while on a trip. I had seen the cartoon advertised but never really heard much about the book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can't wait until my children are a little older so I can read it aloud to them. I am a teacher and would definitely recommend this book for individual or group reading/study. It is captivating from beginning to end. The characters are wonderfully engaging. You will hate Cluny and love the heroes of Redwall. I am looking forward to reading more of the series.

“Brian Jacques has the true fantasy writer’s ability to create a wholly new and believable world.” –School Library Journal “Jacques extols the virtues of honor and valor…[The Redwall Novels] are a good read, with enticing maps, plenty of songs, a dose of natural history, and loads of excitement, charm, and humor.” –The Irish Times “Wonderfully imaginative.” –The New York Times Book Review “Children are privileged to enter the rich world of Redwall and Mossflower. So are the parents who get to come along.” –The Boston Phoenix “A grand adventure story. Once the reader is hooked, there is no peace until the final page.” –Chicago Sun-Times “Old-fashioned swashbuckling adventure.” –Locus “The Redwall books…add a touch of chivalry and adventure reminiscent of the King Arthur stories.” –Arkansas Democrat-Gazette “Filled with rousing adventure, strong characters, and vibrant settings.” –The Boston Sunday Globe “Packed with action and imbued with warmth…richly inventive.” –Kirkus Reviews “Jacques’s effortless, fast-paced narrative gets its readers quickly hooked. He clearly loves this other world he has created—there’s a genius sense of involvement and care (lots of lovingly descriptive passages), as well as an overflowing, driving imagination.” –Birmingham Post “A richly imagined world in which bloody battles vie for attention with copious feasting and tender romancing.” –The Cincinnati Enquirer
