Publisher's Summary

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?

Read by: Brian Jacques, Beth Cassidy, Ron Delacruz, Dave Foode, Gordon Hall, Marc Jacques, Greg Longridge, Nicky Mackay, Billy Maher, Ron Meadows, Angela Mounsey, Rachel Murphy, Anna Ord, Simon Smithies, Keddy Sutton, and Liam Tobin

    "Better and better :)"

    I have only recently discovered the Redwall books. Each on brings new delights of description. This one made me want to laugh aloud at the antics of dibuns and hares, and cry over sorrows and partings. I hope others enjoy this book as much as I did.

    "Soooooooo good!"

    This audiobook was amazing!!!!! I've listened to it about 70 times and know it by heart. It has 'sadness and joy, comedy and tragedy, and a good dose of rousing action' I would recommend this book to anyone who loves animals and who loves adventure. This is a perfect book for all ages! I would even like it if I was 80 years old! (I'm only 13 by the way.)
    The way it's done is outstanding! Brian Jacques is a master of his trade!

    Story
    "Adventure and Fantasy Well Mixed"
    If you could sum up The Taggerung in three words, what would they be?

    Excitement, life, and adventure all mixed in one book


    What did you like best about this story?

    That the characters were both strong yet relatable.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    All of the different narrators bring a sense of being actual people. I love this style of narrating that uses multiple people, instead of just the one.

    "Loved it as always!"

    Since reading my first Redwall book, The Bellmaker, I was hooked. The Taggerung has always been my favorite and the audiobook more than did it justice. Brian Jacques' narration brings another aspect to this book and the casting on voices is beyond reproach. I highly suggest this book to any fan of Redwall.

    I love reading, but my busy schedule usually keeps me from it. Audio Books have always been a fall back, even for long trips to anywhere!

    Story
    "If its not a Gold Medal book, it should be!"
    What did you love best about The Taggerung?

    I truly and deeply cared for the creatures of Redwall, it amazed me that when one of the creatures was killed, I was in tears. The story was amazing and I just loved it all the way!


    What other book might you compare The Taggerung to and why?

    Mrs. Prisby and The Rats of NIMH.
    First of all, the main cast and crew are anthropomorphic creatures. Mice, Badgers, Moles, Rats, Foxes, Otters, and other such creatures are utilized to describe all the different manner of characters in the series.
    Secondly, its a young adult book. The vocabulary used in the book can be read and understood by young children, yet enjoyed by adults.


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

    The part at the end of the book where it put me in tears.

    "One of the best!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Taggerung to be better than the print version?

    Yes, Mainly because the full cast adds an extra zing to it.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    They all have their own uniqueness about them, but I believe that Taggerung is the best of all


    Any additional comments?

    When I first heard of the Redwall series from my brother, I was a bit skeptical. Now that I've listened to it myself, I can easily say it is one of the most imaginative and funny stories I have heard in a while. Funny characters, excellent voice acting, great storytelling.

    Overall it's one that should listen to, and place in your library. It doesn't matter whether your young or old, you'll chuckle or laugh at some parts anytime you hear it.

    Recommended to anyone who wants originality, and doesn't want the same old plotline
