Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Brian Jacques has millions of copies of his phenomenally popular Redwall series in print. Fans cannot get enough of the feasting, fighting, and fantastic adventures that fill every book. A horrifying creature has landed on the shores of Mossflower country: Gulo the Savage, a wolverine who is known to devour his enemies' flesh. Gulo intends to kill his brother and seize a mighty relic known as the Walking Stone. But standing in Gulo's way is Redwall Abbey and a mercenary squirrel named Rakkety Tam MacBurl. Soon, the Mossflower woods are ringing with the glorious sound of battlecries, as an epic battle that tests the bonds of comradeship begins.
Thanks to the extraordinary vocal talents of a full cast of accomplished performers, joined by the author himself, each wondrous character is fully brought to life, and Rakkety Tam becomes a riveting listening experience that is not easily forgotten.

Took me back to Story Time back when I was a Kid

It took me a bit to get used to the harsh accents that the many different readers "actors" give to the charactors of the book. Soon I found I counted on them to help distinguish the different charactors as there are many. Before long I was captivated by the story which was well worth the purchase. One of those books you would not mind finding it is one of several in a series as you didn't want to let go of the charactors in the story.

Jacques Doesn't Disappoint

I am a 5th grade teacher and have never been disappointed by a Brian Jacques work. Whether it's a book in the wonderful Redwall family or one of his unrelated works like Castaways of the Flying Dutchman; Jacques remains a masterful storyteller. I agree with other reviewers that it takes a chapter or two to "tune" your ears to the accents of the wide variety of creatures and characters, but once that is done you're in for a fantastic, morally sound tale suitable for children from 9-99. Enjoy!!
