Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Brian Jacques has millions of copies of his phenomenally popular Redwall series in print. Fans cannot get enough of the feasting, fighting, and fantastic adventures that fill every book.

A horrifying creature has landed on the shores of Mossflower country: Gulo the Savage, a wolverine who is known to devour his enemies' flesh. Gulo intends to kill his brother and seize a mighty relic known as the Walking Stone. But standing in Gulo's way is Redwall Abbey and a mercenary squirrel named Rakkety Tam MacBurl. Soon, the Mossflower woods are ringing with the glorious sound of battlecries, as an epic battle that tests the bonds of comradeship begins.

Thanks to the extraordinary vocal talents of a full cast of accomplished performers, joined by the author himself, each wondrous character is fully brought to life, and Rakkety Tam becomes a riveting listening experience that is not easily forgotten.

Don't miss any of Brian Jacques' Redwall series.

    "Took me back to Story Time back when I was a Kid"

    It took me a bit to get used to the harsh accents that the many different readers "actors" give to the charactors of the book. Soon I found I counted on them to help distinguish the different charactors as there are many. Before long I was captivated by the story which was well worth the purchase. One of those books you would not mind finding it is one of several in a series as you didn't want to let go of the charactors in the story.

    "Jacques Doesn't Disappoint"

    I am a 5th grade teacher and have never been disappointed by a Brian Jacques work. Whether it's a book in the wonderful Redwall family or one of his unrelated works like Castaways of the Flying Dutchman; Jacques remains a masterful storyteller. I agree with other reviewers that it takes a chapter or two to "tune" your ears to the accents of the wide variety of creatures and characters, but once that is done you're in for a fantastic, morally sound tale suitable for children from 9-99. Enjoy!!

    "Never gets old"
    Where does Rakkety Tam rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've listened to around two to five audio books a week and Rakkety Tam is in my top three


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rakkety Tam hes a classic hero


    What about Brian Jacques and Full Cast ’s performance did you like?

    I wish all books were done by the author and a full cast theres nothing quite like it

    "Gotta love these Irish and Scottish voices"
    Any additional comments?

    Man, this is one of the greatest books by Brian J., and it should defiantly be within anybodies library. Its funny, adventurous, imaginative and downright original. With most books and book series, you get some of the same characters that start to bore you after some time, but with this series, you'll always hear about something different.

    The way this has stood out, would have to be the Highland and Border squirrels. Man, I love those accents! They're amazing and i found myself trying to make an Irish accent myself.

    Highly recommended to people who would like to have something original that's never the same when you listen to the others!

    "Got to love the accents!"
    What did you love best about Rakkety Tam?

    Lots of action, unexpected events, plus plenty of humor. The catchy tunes were a big plus too.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rakkety Tam & Doogy Plumm. Ah've always loved a Scottish accent, and these didnae disappoint. :) Loved all of the Long Patrol for similar reasons to that above; the accents really make the book.


    Have you listened to any of Brian Jacques and Full Cast ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to Mossflower and to Taggerung. All had excellent casting, with the voices fitting the charactors just right.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Moved...probably not, but I listened and re-listened to several parts.

    "Vintage Brian Jaques"

    Two swashbuckling Scotsmen to the rescue.
    The story has the usual mix of suspense and loyalty.
    I love Brian Jaques Scottish burr, but this book features two charming Higland Scottish accents.
    BJ fans won't be disappointed.

    "second best book by Brian Jaques"

    I like reading books by Brian Jacques, but this is the second book that I realy like reading. The first would be Redwall. In this story, he chose a very effective character called Rackety Tam. Tam is a squirrel warrior. One of the reasons I enjoy reading his books is because he useally thinks of unuseal way to write his stories and also because he has songs an poems along with the story.

    "Outstanding"

    My 10-year-old son and I are both big Redwall fans, and the warrior squirrels Rakkety Tam MacBurl and Doogie Plum are two of our favorite characters ever. The story is exciting and even a bit suspenseful in spots, as Jacques deviates a bit from the normal formula. Four enthusiastic thumbs up.
