In a world where humans don’t exist, and animals have gained the intelligence needed to make buildings and communities, there is a renowned abbey of mice named Redwall. The mice that live there are dedicated to healing and sheltering those who pass by. But far away, a rat warlord named Cluny the Scourge approaches, leaving a trail of death, destruction, and slavery in his wake. He has heard rumors of the riches and prosperity of the abbey and has gathered a horde to conquer it. The woodlanders inside must somehow find a way to defend their homes and families against this new scourge.

What I liked about this book is the world-building that goes on. Each setting and character is lavishly described, making this book and its series more memorable. The plot may be somewhat hackneyed in places during this book, but certain characters add to it in such a way that it becomes more engaging to the reader.

To do NOT like this book. It is so predictable! The story is how Cluny is going to kill them all, so the mouse has to go and find the sword so he can kill him. It was so obvious that this was going to happen! I did not enjoy the novel at all. There was so much death, bad words, and it made no sense. The moles talked is some weird language so I could not understand what they were saying most of the time. The store is useless and is just pure filler. I disliked this story GREATLY!

Brian Jacques' series was popular in high school, but I did not read it at that time, so I decided to include it in my 2017 Reading Challenge under the category, "book about an animal." Redwall is a very stereotypical adventure story. The protagonist is male and an orphan, has no faults, saves the day, and gets the girl.

The book that started it all! We love this tale of adventure, bravery, and honor. Who knew woodland creatures led such dramatic lives?

First of all, I love this whole series. That said, I find Redwall (the first book) somewhat lacking in the charm that characterizes the other books of the series. It's also fairly violent, more so then some of the other books. Personally, I would recommend starting with Mossflower, which is my favorite book of the series. The whole series is filled with adventure, but the loyalty, honesty, and friendship of the characters stands out even more. The good characters are good. The evil characters can be *quite* evil, though, so I wouldn't recommend these for young children. Still, the amazing adventures, moral characters, and wonderful writing make this series absolutely unforgettable. Eulaliaaa!
