Before there was Harry Potter, there was REDWALL, Brian Jacques's epic tales of an abbey populated by anthropomorphic mice and subject to periodic brutal invasions by all manner of evil stoats, weasels, rats and assorted bad guys. Authors who read their own books take big risks, but luckily Jacques's deep, rough, Liverpudlian accent and deliberate pacing work as he delivers the material that he obviously knows well. The story involves ancient history in the Redwall universe, the story of Martin the Warrior's legendary father, Luke (both are mice), who wields a mighty sword by sea and land. It is the twelfth book in a wonderful series. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
