When Redwall was published in 1987 it catapulted author Brian Jacques to international stardom. And small wonder! This enthralling tale is jam-packed with the things we long for in a great adventure: danger, laughter, hairbreadth escapes, tragedy, mystery, a touch of wonder, a truly despicable villain, and a hero we can take to heart.

That hero is Matthias, a young mouse who must rise above his fears and failures to save his friends at Redwall Abbey. The villain is Cluny the Scourge, one of the most deliciously despicable rats of all time. The unforgettable cast of supporting characters includes the stalwart badger Constance, an irrepressible hare named Basil Stag Hare, and the elderly wisemouse Brother Methuselah.

But most of all there is Matthias, seeking his true destiny in a journey that will lead through danger and despair to true wisdom.

In the summertime, Brian Jacques creates his enthralling Redwall books on an old manual typewriter in the garden of his Liverpool home. "I like to think of myself as a bit of an old-fashioned romantic in writing," he says. "I don't like technology. I like the romantic age of "once upon a time" and "long ago and far away ..."

Before he began writing for children, Brian Jacques' life was as rich and adventurous as the stories he creates. At the age of fifteen, he went to sea and travelled the world before returning to Liverpool. He has been a professional fold singer and has won acclaim for his plays performed at the Everyman Theatre, where he was resident playwright. For many years, he has presented his one-man show, Jakestown, on Radio Merseyside.
