The first book of Brian Jacques’ Redwall series, this is a fun and exciting adventure centred around the abbey of Redwall and its surrounding forests. Matthias is the main character, and the reader follows him on his quest to save the abbey and the residents of the forest from an invading army of evil rats and other unsavory creatures. Filled with mystery, intrigue, and emotion, this book and series is definitely worth a read.

Anyone who likes animals will enjoy this book, as will anyone with an interest in fantasy.

Set several years before the first book, Redwall, Mossflower tells the story of Martin the Warrior in his quest to liberate Mossflower woods from the tyrannical rule of an evil wildcat. Like the other Redwall books, Mossflower is filled with adventures, battles, good times, and bad times, and is an enjoyable read.

Anyone who enjoyed Redwall will naturally want to continue in the series. Mossflower is in many ways more rich and developed than Redwall, as Brian Jacques never intended to publish Redwall when he was initially writing it.
