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?

The Taggerung is possibly one of the most amusing and suspenseful books of the series. It's filled with joy and sadness, difficult triumphs and resounding defeats. it has great mystery and a wealth of clarity delivered by some of the most memorable of characters, all of which can be found with friends and feasts here. Won't you come and join in? After all, the doors of Redwall Abbey are always welcome to any and all goodbeasts.
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.
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!
Excitement, life, and adventure all mixed in one book
That the characters were both strong yet relatable.
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.
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!
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!
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.
The part at the end of the book where it put me in tears.
Yes, Mainly because the full cast adds an extra zing to it.
They all have their own uniqueness about them, but I believe that Taggerung is the best of all
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
