"Redwall" is the first book written in a series, which also has the name Redwall. The author, Brian Jacques, is from Liverpool, England and the story is set in a rather English type of countryside. There is one important difference, however, the characters are all talking animals!
My daughter and I decided to read "Redwall," and the rest of the books in the series, quite a while ago. Actually, they're not written in the order of the chronology of events, which caused me a bit of confusion at one point. But "Redwall" was written first, and it is a wonderful introduction to the whole world, the creatures, and the style of storytelling that has become a favorite in our house. This review hopefully gives a flavor of that world, without any real spoilers!
