Publisher's Summary

When Redwall was published in 1987 it catapulted author Brian Jacques to international stardom. And small wonder! This enthralling tale is jam-packed with the things we long for in a great adventure: danger, laughter, hairbreadth escapes, tragedy, mystery, a touch of wonder, a truly despicable villain, and a hero we can take to heart.

That hero is Matthias, a young mouse who must rise above his fears and failures to save his friends at Redwall Abbey. The villain is Cluny the Scourge, one of the most deliciously despicable rats of all time. The unforgettable cast of supporting characters includes the stalwart badger Constance, an irrepressible hare named Basil Stag Hare, and the elderly wisemouse Brother Methuselah.

But most of all there is Matthias, seeking his true destiny in a journey that will lead through danger and despair to true wisdom.

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

Fun and exciting adventure with woodland creatures

A friend had brought the Redwall series to my attention and saw it on sale for a few bucks. Told myself why not and I was not disappointed. It is a very fun and excitedly little dive into the world of Redwall Abbey and the adventures the furry characters get into.

Loved it

Years ago I saw an animated version of this story, I believe it was on PBS, but I do not know why it took me so long to actually get around to reading the book or in this case listen to the audio. If not for the ability of the narrator's I doubt it would have had as much of an impact as it did ,but keeping all of that in mind this is possibly one of the best audiobooks of ever listed to.

It was great, I loved the full cast.

Sometimes you get a narrator that can't be multiple characters, sometimes you get a narrator who is awesome and makes you feel like your listening to a book read by multiple different people, or you actually get a full cast of people.

A children's classic!

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this story. Great story for children and adults as well. Wonderful performance by the cast, and I really appreciate the fact that they chose to include having the author as the Narrator as well. Well done! In fact, so well done that I have now bought all of the Redwall series that Audible has. Highly recommended!

Standard children's fantasy but the voice cast was very entertaining.

This is the first audiobook I listened to with a full cast and I loved all the voices, especially Cluny. He sounded so wicked and cunning. You can tell Brian Jacques truly loved his work to narrate with such enthusiasm.

However, I will note that it took me a couple hours in to realize he was saying "squirrel" and not "squiddle."

better than any full cast production read before

I have not listened to many stories read by the author OR fully cast that satisfied me but this one did! Usually, the author tends to have a droning voice and one or more important characters are poorly cast. I was worried that this book would make all the mice and rats sound like cartoon animals which would be terrible! However, that was not the case. Brian Jaques was a brilliant narrator and the cast, hand picked by him as I understand, read their parts perfectly.
I love this book, but don't be mistaken by the cute characters. The battle sequences can be frightening and some important characters meet sad ends. Parents should read this first, especially if you have kids inclined to anxiety about those things.
That being said, this is a great book for older kids and families who like adventure tales (and well described feasts)!
