This series has about fifteen books, but they're out of order. I got lost around the fourth one, but the first one is really worth reading. The first, chronologically, is Lord Brocktree, but I don't know what the next one is. This is like the fourth or something.

It's hard to get into these when you're older because the concept of mice and squirrels fighting rats and ferrets is a little off-putting to some, but I started reading them when I was ten and still will take a trip to the children's section whenever a new one comes out.

I loved this book so much, the characters and the dialogue really makes it seem realistic! There were so many surprises! The book was especially better than the graphic novel in my opinion. Overall Redwall was an awesome book to read, praise for Brian Jacques!

This is a great chapter book for little boys (& girls). I read this when I was little and am now sharing the adventure with my own children. Each chapter is short, just a few pages and makes finishing one an easy accomplishment. The story line is fabulous and full of imagination. The character development is wonderful, you fall in love with the mice of Redwall right away. You’ll end up cheering for the creatures of Mossflower and booing the war rat Cluny & his hord. My son & I enjoyed reading this book together. Everyone should have this book on their reading list!!

I love it because it is pure and simple fantasy with just enough war with bloodthirsty battle.

I loved this book. it was posibly my all-time favorite book. i like this kind of book. animals as people. as you read, you begin to think the animals are like people. it also tells you a story about bravery and courage, and growing. it tells a story about a young mouse who grows, and becomes the warrior of Redwall abbey. [Series: Redwall #1]

This book was good, but pretty unrealistic because first of all mice don't talk and dress like people and live in castles and stuff, if this really happened it would be good. They all have really long names that make it hard to remember. [Series: Redwall #1]

This is an AWSOME book! Although a lot of kids my age (especially girls) think that it's too young or "It's all about fighting or cooking" (yeah RIGHT!) I find it and the fourteen or fifteen other Redwall books great easy reads. There is a beautiful Abbey made of red sandstone in the country of Mossflower, a place of peace and sanctuary where good creatures live and work. It's not an Abbey like monks chanting all day in a grey stone cathedral; it's busy, happy, lovely place. Matthias is a bumbling young mouse, left as an orphan at the Abbey gates when a babe, who dreams of being a Warrior like Martin the Warrior, a legendary hero and founder of Redwall in ages lost to count. But, as the wise, kindly Abbot Mortimer tells him, the time of wars is over. Or so the peaceful Abbeydwellers think.... On the night of the Feast of the Summer of the Late Rose, Cluny, the warlord rat, comes to the area with one goal in mind: Capturing the great, strong, beautiful Redwall... So Matthias must rise up, take up Martin's famous sword, and defend the home he loves.... Five stars isn't enough for this new favorite of mine! After reading the original Redwall, I sugggest reading the books in the order they where written... And DO NOT READ 'Mattimeo' next! Becaues, believe me, you will fall totally and completely in love with the characters that grace both that and 'Redwall', who do not appear in any of the following books. Also suggested by me: ~The Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien(!!!!!) ~Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen ~The Call of the Wild, Jack London [Series: Redwall #1]
