Redwall Series (22 volumes!!) by Brian Jacques (1986 – 2011)

Castles. . .knights. . .battles. . .feasts. . .rats. . .mice. . .ferrets — the Redwall books have them all!  With the possible exception of Harry Potter, the Brian Jacques’ Redwall series were the favorite books in our family!  I purchased every volume as they were published and they were read multiple times over the years, sometimes as the family read-aloud, but most often by a child curled up on the couch completely lost in another world.

I love that the first book was written for the young blind students Brian Jacques came to know well while working as a milkman for their school!  Isn’t that sweet?  The original, handwritten manuscript was quietly taken to a publisher by Mr. Jacques former English teacher, who reportedly told them Redwall was the finest children’s story he’d ever read.  I think he was right.

The audiobook is read by the author.
