New York Times bestselling author Brian Jacques gives us another tale of Redwall, filled with "The Knights of the Round Table with paws" ( The Sunday Times) along with their friends and enemies.

The thrilling prequel to "Redwall".

When the clever and greedy wildcat Tsarmina becomes Queen of a Thousand Eyes and ruler of all Mossflower Woods, she is determined to govern the peaceful woodlanders with an iron paw, bringing every otter and hedgehog, every mouse and squirrel, whimpering to their knees."

But the brave mouse Martin and quick-talking mousethief Gonff meet in the depths of Kotir Castle's dungeon. With the aid of all the woodlanders, the two escape and resolve to end Tsarmina's tyrannical rule. Joined by Kinny the mole, Martin and Gonff set off on a dangerous quest for Salamandastron, mountain of dragons, where they are convinced that their only hope, Boar the Fighter, still lives...

* This book features Gonff the Mousethief, a character that Jacques based on himself.

* Once again Jacques delights us with mouthwatering descriptions of food! His books always make me hungry. :)

* The book has a good balance between male and female characters, so that boys and girls alike can see themselves reflected in the story.

Mossflower is a well written book with likeable characters and unexpected plot twists. A very good read. I couldn't put the book down.

Mossflower was a nice break from the repetition of Redwall, Mattimeo, and most of the other books when they are just defending Redwall Abbey.
