    A reviewer who thinks harry potter is overrated

    I love the redwall series but it seems like that they have gone downhill since about Lord Brocktree (but it was one of my favorites). Rakkety Tam was good compared to some other books though.

    SCORE!

    Fantastic. But fantastic is merely good with Redwall books. Even the worst Redwall book (The Legend of Luke) is still better than any other book i've ever read outside of the series, but still, Score! Rakkety Tam was such a good character and his pal Doogy was even better. The whole hanibal thing kind of made me want to close the book at parts but i never did, after all i'm a Redwall freak. Because i wasn't getting direct answers back from Brian Jacques after sending my letters, (one was 14 pages along, the equivelent of my age)i waited two hours in line at a book signing and personally handed him my letter before getting The Outcast of Redwall signed (The best book in the series and OF ALL TIME). I even wrote my own Redwall book. Yeah it was only thirty pages long but the characters and story were fantastic. If you are a realy big fan of Brian, than i suggest you do the same. If you think you love BJ's stories, well wait till you've written your own.

    A Mother's Opinion

    My 9, almost 10, year old son is in LOVE with the Redwall series. I started reading them aloud to him when he was 5, after seeing the animated series on PBS. Sure, some are better than others, and sure, they're formulaic. However, the predictability seems to be one of my son's favorite features. The good guys always win; the bad guys always lose. He even likes the long lists of food. In fact, this weekend we will go berry picking to reproduce a blackberry and apple tart mentioned in Redwall. My point is this: all of the Redwall series is perfect for kids who love adventure. Grown ups may like it, or not. This stuff is not great literature; it'll never win a Pulitzer. But they are lively, vivid, engaging stories, with a child friendly morality. Because my son is dyslexic, I continue to read the Redwall series aloud to him, (12 in 5 years, a chapter or two at a time!) and we have had interesting conversations about some of the moral dilemmas, which we then compare to playground and other friendships. I find that in a world of uncertainty, ambiguity about right and wrong, and danger threatening every day life, (See: Iraq, terrorists, government and business corruption, increased poltical polarization,) the Redwall series is an oasis of clear heroes, evil getting its due, and love and persistance winning in the end. Another Redwall book? Give us a couch, an evening, and my son and I are off on another adventure.
