Preparations for the feast for the Summer of The Golden Rain are underway at Redwall Abbey, and young Mattimeo is set to work with the other inhabitants by his mother. His father, Mathius, is the guardian of Redwall Abbey and it is this that puts the young Mattimeo in danger as the evil Slagar the Fox plots to kidnap him in a bid to shake the very foundations of the Abbey and its inhabitants.
Rip-roaring adventure at its very best, Mattimeo is one of the exquisitely executed and totally bewitching tales in the bestselling Redwall series. Brian Jacques, with his masterly use of language and enviable talent for descriptive prose that transports the reader to the very heart of Redwall, magically weaves an epic tale that is breathtaking in proportion and design. Utterly addictive, Mattimeo is packed with so much colour, passion, fury and love that it will leave readers desperate for more. (9 years and over) --Susan HarrisonReview:
