About the Author

Brian Jacques (www.redwallabbey.com) was born in Liverpool in 1939. He left school at age fifteen and found work as a docker, a truck driver, a policeman and a stand-up comic, all before turning his attention to writing. He wrote his first novel, Redwall, for the children at a school for the blind in Liverpool. Since 1986, his descriptive style of writing has captivated readers from age 8 to 80. His books have won international awards and acclaim and have been made into a TV series.

Reviews

Gr 5 Up-Redwall fans will be thrilled with this audio version of the latest in Brian Jacques' immensely popular series (Philomel, 2002). Jacques himself is the narrator, and a full cast adept at numerous accents and varied speech patterns helps create every little animal type and disposition in the fabled world he brings to life. Listeners will need to take some time and effort to get used to all those different voices, and even Jacques' British accent underlaid with occasional hints of brogue requires sharp listening at first. Songs are fully integrated in the story, and brief, appropriate folk melodies begin and end each chapter and side. This exceptionally well-produced recording adds a lively and enchanting quality to the story of Triss, the squirrel maid who escapes slavery and takes up the defense of Redwall Abbey with the legendary sword. Three separate plot lines wend along with their own characters and adventures, moving slowly and steadily to an intersection in the defense of Redwall against her envious and bitter enemies. The audio version is lengthy, the characters numerous, and the variety of voices challenging. Yet devoted Jacques fans will be well rewarded with this beguiling recording of an enchanting and adventurous tale. Listeners already familiar with the Redwall series will fare better with this complex audio tale than those new to the series. All libraries serving Redwall fans will find an enthusiastic audience for thisaudiobook.-Jane P. Fenn, Corning-Painted Post West High School, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Praise for Triss "Jacques's fervent followers are rewarded with the author's usual swashbuckling good storytelling, while the newly initiated will read with wide eyes, and quickly go back to hungrily devour the rest of the series."--Amazon.com "Scrumptious feasts, rollicking humor, swashbuckling heroes, faithful friends, and treacherous villains magically combine through three intertwined action-packed plots into one unforgettable, spellbinding story." --VOYA More praise for Brian Jacques "Almost nonstop action."--School Library Journal on The Angel's Command
