The Redwall Series
by Brian Jacques (Author)
The heroic characters are ones the reader not only becomes fond of, but also learns to love and admire, as they uphold the Abbey's mission to keep the world peace and ordered. This imagined world of domestic detail and created mythology has captured the hearts of many children and made them readers for life.
