Brian Jacques is both a master storyteller and a jack of all trades. He has lived the life of a sailor, actor, comedian, radio presenter, boxer - even a bus driver. Today he is the recipient of an honorary Doctorate of Letters from the University of Liverpool, and the bestselling author of over twenty-five books for young readers, including the hugely popular Redwall series. Brian lives in his hometown of Liverpool.From Booklist:
The latest installment in the phenomenally popular Redwall series will captivate fans. Jacques adds to his cast of memorable characters with two new deliciously nasty villains: Korvus Skurr the raven and Sicariss the snake, who are seeking the four jeweled eyes of the Great Doomwyte Idol, as is the current batch of adorable Redwall heroes. Jacques’ trademark anagrams and clever riddles finally lead the heroes to the glittering treasure. There are some particularly delightful new characters, including an always-hungry Scottish rabbit, Laird Bosie McScutta of Bowlaynee, and the charming tawny owl Aluco. Although this newest title won’t stand alone, series followers will be tickled by references to Redwall history and the chance to adventure (and dine) with the squirrels, moles, mice, and porcupines of Jacques’ unique world. Grades 5-8. --Debbie Carton
