Publisher's Summary

Mattimeo should have been named "trouble". Always getting into mischief and quick to lose his temper, the young mouse seems an unlikely candidate to take up the great sword once wielded by the legendary Martin to defend Redwall Abbey's peaceful way of life. But when Mattimeo and his friends are kidnapped by the fierce fox Slagar the Cruel, the bold little mouse learns that there is far more to becoming a true warrior than simply brandishing a sword.
Don't miss any of Brian Jacques' Redwall series.

Redwall sequel not to be missed!

If you love the original Redwall novel, you owe it to yourself to give this a listen. Brilliant novels rarely have worthy sequels, but this is one of them. The whole cast does a terrific job. Can't recommend these recordings highly enough.

A great sequel to Redwall

I have loved reading Brian Jacques novels for many years, but I am disappointed that the only one read read by a single person (Stuart Blinder) is Redwall. I really wish there were more treated the same, I don't enjoy the full cast, but tolerate it.
To readers who may balk at the quality of the sample (like myself), the actual recording is much better and cleaner. Otherwise I would have returned it right away.
The music between chapters is really irritating, especially the repetitive overly-sampled voice that sounds like they're saying "doo-doo-doo-doo". Just have to grit your teeth and ignore it if you want the story.
The things you put up with to be able to do chores and read at the same time.

Beautifully done!

Once again the narration and performance was brilliant! This telling kept me captive and foraging for extra hours in my busy day so that I can listen to a little more! Thank you to everyone involved!!!

What a great cast!

Really enjoyed the quality of the voice actors. Such a great production—I look forward to re-listening with my children when they are a bit older!

Keeps getting better and better!

This is not a narration, it's live theatre with a rich variety of voices and timbres that really bring this book to life! Little Rolo's songs had me grinning from ear to ear. What a pleasant way to revisit books I enjoyed reading as a kid!

Great 👍 Redwall Books

Martimeo is a great sequel for Redwall. I personally enjoy books that have the same characters as the previous one in the series. This Redwall novel is one of the few of Brian Jacques novels that is a sequel. It is amazing how Jacques uses old lose ends from his first novel Redwall into this one. It is really a work of art!
