Review: Mattimeo, by Brian Jacques

In this book from the Redwall series by Brian Jacques, Slagar the evil fox kidnaps several of the young of Redwall Abbey. Mattimeo, a mouse, son of Matthias, hero of Redwall, his friends Tim and Tess, also mice, Auma the badger and Jube the hedgehog are among the prisoners that Slagar captures and intends to sell as slaves to the evil Malkarris, a polecat, of the underground rat kingdom. Matthias is joined by several Redwallers as well as Orlando the Axe, a badger, and a band of shrews led by Log-a-log to pursue Slagar and return the young ones to Redwall. I listened to the audio version narrated by the author with various actors voicing the characters which also included delightful musical interludes. Put a visit to Redwall in Mossflower wood on your to-do list this autumn.

RATING: * * * * Very, very good
