Publisher's Summary

The vicious Rapscallion army is threatening to batter down the walls of Redwall Abbey. But standing in their way are the brave hares of the Long Patrol and a stout-hearted contingent of forest creatures. And no defender of Redwall is more courageous than young Tammo, an inexperienced but eager hare who dreams of great adventure. Fueled by sumptuous feasting and hearts lifted by stirring ballads, Tammo and his honorable companions raise their swords in a pitched battle for the future of their land.
Don't miss any of Brian Jacques' Redwall series.

Extremely well produced story

What did you love best about The Long Patrol?

This is more audio drama than just reading of a book. Multiple actors and voices led even more interest to an already well written story. Although a "kids book", our whole family (including teenage boys) enjoyed this as we traveled.

My personal favorite of the series

Not everyone seems to think so, but this one is my favorite for the whole Redwall series. It covers a more serious theme than usual, keeps a lot of humor around it, and has some very heroic moments by different characters.

Another Fun Episode in the Redwall Series

Where does The Long Patrol rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Long Patrol was a fun story to listen to. It has a cast reading the various speaking roles as well as being narrated by the author. It was one of the better books I have listened to recently.

What did you like best about this story?

For long-time Redwall fans, this story involved characters from all areas of Mossflower: Hares, otters, shrews, Badgers, and Redwallers. It was a story of coming of age for the main character. It had adventure, celebrations, and the bad guys were really bad but buffoonish. It was later than Redwall in Redwall's timeline, but it had some aspects that went back to the Mossflower story, which was fun because it recalled that book for me.

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

This is about the 7th Brian Jacque's performance I have listened to. They are all good, and this one was as well.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The Long Patrol: A Coming of Age for a Young Hare

Any additional comments?

The Redwall books are clever. They are written in a style that is reminiscent of Tolkien, with virtuous heroes, clumsy villains, poems and songs.

The best there is! REDWAAAALLLL!!

This is my FAVORITE of all the Redwall novels and with a full cast and narrated by the author (Brian Jacques) himself, it just doesn't get any better than this! I've listened to the recording four times now and it's like visiting with old friends every time. So come along, sit by the fire in cavern hole and listen to tales of warriors and villians, feasts and friends. The gate is always open to you good and gentle creatures at Redwall Abbey.

Eulaliaaaa!

I have read and followed the Redwall series since I was young. Each book brings you new characters, and old ones too. By reading the series you become part of the characters lives and understand the history behind the magnificent Abbey of Redwall.

The Long Patrol brings you to the life of young Tam. His journey into the famous Long Patrol. New life. New love. Death of friends and Birth of new ones.

As with all books in the Redwall series there are stories to learn for readers both young and old. How to act among friends and how are be amongst enemies.

Listen to the book, you will be hooked. Even better you will not get bored of the stories and will be able to listen to them over and over again.

One of the best of the Redwall series

We have listened to many of the Redwall series. This is one of our favourites, lots of irrepressible hares up to bold, fun adventures. It also gives great explanations of the basis of other story lines in other books, such as how Cregor got to Redwall. A great listen

Brian Jacques does it again

A gripping story that is both hilarious and tense in turns. There?s plenty of action to keep you hooked from start to finish, and several sub plots to make sure that no matter what you?re never board. A delightful addition to the Chronicles of Redwall.
