Waterstones Says

The first instalment of Brian Jacques’s epic anthropomorphic series finds the peace-loving mice of Redwall Abbey forced to confront the deadly danger of a battalion of marauding rats. Mixing high adventure with charming characterisation, Redwall has endured as a true classic of children’s literature.


Welcome to Redwall Abbey. Inside its enormous doors, mice live in peace, helping those in need and throwing epic feasts for the great and the good of Mossflower Woods.

But outside a grave threat is gathering. An army of evil rats led by a vicious, one-eyed warlord, is on its way.

Matthias is just one little mouse but he knows it'll take more than stones and mouse-sized arrows to keep the rats at bay. Enlisting the help of a military hare, wild sparrows and argumentative stoats, Matthias sets out to defend his freedom, his friends, and the abbey he calls home.

Includes exclusive material: In the Backstory you can learn to make a Redwall Abbey pudding!

There are quests and riddles; cunning treachery and chivalric derring-do; and, in a feature that became a hallmark of the entire series, groaning boards spread with sumptuous feasts, lovingly described - New York Times

The combination of a completely imagined world full of domestic detail...with a strongly created mythology to underpin them, big-scale plots and Jacques's rolling prose quickly turned Redwall into a leading international brand in children's books - Guardian

“One of the very best children’s series ever!”
