    THE BEST

    It was great! Tammo is a young hare who wants to join the Long Patrol, but his father would rather not. But he runs away with a squirrel and meets a group of Long Patrol hares. As they travel to Redwall they find out about a vermin army planning to take over Redwall. Just outside the Abbey at the 'Ridge' starts a memorial battle! The only thing that dissapointed me was that they didn't say 'wot wot' enough.

    The best of Jacques yet!

    This book is undisputably my favorite of all of Jacques' books. The story is awesome and the characters (except for the villains) are incredibly loveable! This book will make you cry and cheer and it will make you want to read it time and again! If you haven't read this book, especially if you're a fan of Jacques' books, you need to start today!

    Cool

    My fav characters are Corp. Rubbadubb and Pasque. Mostnof the voices of the hares are in english accents and spoken fast. That is a point of reference for americans.

    Accent too hard

    If your an American, it is too difficult to follow the accent. It is written like the characters are Scottish (I believe). The story seems good, but it just takes too much work to read this and try to relax.

    Redwaaaaalllllllll!

    Pretty good. A lot like his others but hey, thats part of the jacques appeal. predictably good. Great ending. The battles always get your heart pounding, make you sad, and make you mad. The characters are fun & light-hearted even most of the villians. The food weird, the songs ridiculous, & the story has good smatterings of wisdom & compassion. A good solid book.

    The Long Patrol

    When the huge Rapscillian army is invading, it¿s up to one small group of hares to stop them. The Rapscillians decide to invade Mossflower country. A small group of hares learn of this invasion, and they go to Redwall. With Redwall¿s help, the hares meet the Rapscillians in combat. The Rapscillians are defeated, and peace returns to Mossflower. I recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure stories with a lot of action in them. There is a lot of action in The Long Patrol. A lot of the battles are small, like the part where Tammo¿s group of hares chases a band of ferrets while shooting arrows at them. In another battle, a band of rats ambushes Tammo and Russa in the woods. At the end of the story, there is a huge battle. The Rapscillian army of 1000 tries to get up a really big hill while the Redwall army of 300 tries to stop them. It is a very gruesome battle. The Long Patrol has a lot of colorful characters in it. Russa is an expert in nature, and she loves to travel the world. In the beginning of the story, she gets back from a ¿walk around the world.¿ Midge Manycoats is an expert at disguising himself and others. Unless you know he is in a disguise, you would think that is how he looks. At one point he needs to disguise himself and Tammo so they can sabotage the Rapscillians. Rockjaw Grang will stand up to anything that threatens his friends. He fights an entire band of rats by himself, so Tammo and Midge can escape from harm. There are many surprises in The Long Patrol, both good and bad. In the aftermath of a battle, you find out Russa had gotten killed. In another part of the book, the moles dig a tunnel and find an ancient castle beneath the south wall of Redwall Abby. Also, a group of hares are walking in a field when a rainstorm of arrows falls through the sky onto them. The Long Patrol takes you on a journey with a group of hares through war. You will come to really like some of the characters. The story is filled with suspense. I loved this book, and I think many others would love it to.

    One of Brian Jacques' Best Books The Long Patrol

    Author Brian Jacques Title The Long Patrol Isbn# 0-14-240245-1 358 pgs Publisher Penguin Group Price $7.99 The Long Patrol by Brian Jacques is a book in the Redwall series that tells of Lady Cregga, the lord of Salamandastron. Salamandastron is a huge mountain not too far away from the sea and hold off most sea vermin that plan to take over Mossflower Woods. The lord of Salamandastron has been and always will be a badger. The loyal hares of Salamandastron are ready to take orders and to fight to the death for the badger lord. Besides the hares at Salamandastron there is Camp Tussock which Tamm attends. Tamm plans to join The Long Patrol and become a fighter like his father who runs Camp Tussock. Along the way to Salamandastron he stops at Redwall during the great feast which happens every summer, and helps prepare for an attack from the sea rat army. The army is controlled by Dumag Warfang the greatrat. Brian Jacques is known for writing fantasy books that would appeal to anyone who wants a book that keeps you thinking and throws a laugh in every once in a while. All of his books incorporate many types of tones and language. The moles have gruff type of dialect such as ¿Hurr, gudd day to ee, zur wot you¿m be doin¿ yurrabouts?¿ While the hares speak in a more jolly tone ¿Hmph! Used to patrol down that way, y¿know, lots of toads, nasty slimy types, murderous blighters, hope the cliffs fell on them wot.¿ The three groups meet at a giant rock next to a small gorge. The battle goes on but what happens? Will the vast army of Dumag Warfang defeat the peaceful redwallers and the hares of Salamandastron? The only way to find out is to read this amazing book that is full of excitement and adventure.

    What the Long Patrol is about

    The Long Patrol is Brian Jacque's best book he has ever written. Most of his books I would rate four star but this one wasted his other books. This is defiantly one of my top five books. The Long Patrol is about a hare named Tammo who wants to join the Long Patrol But his father says he is too little. His mother helps her son to run off and join the Long Patrol. Through his journey he runs into 11 Long Patrol hares were learns more about Salamandastron were a badger is in command of the long Patrol. Colonel Eyebright said,¿ I never knew or heard of a badger sufferin' from the blood wrath so badly.' Tammo also learned about a Rapscallion army heading towards Salamandastrons greatest ally the abbey of Redwall, but part of the south wall is breaking at Redwall. Now the Long Patrol is moving out to stop the Rapscallions. Tammo is just about to enter the greatest battle of his time.For ages 11-up
