KLIATT
This is the 15th book in Jacques' epic series about adventurous woodland creatures, both noble and dastardly. Here our heroes are Triss the squirrelmaid, Shogg the otter, and Welfo the hogmaid, who escape from slavery and head across the sea toward Redwall. Nasty brother and sister ferrets Princess Kurda and Prince Bladd are on their trail, while a badger, an otter, and a hare head out to sea too, searching for the lost treasure of Brockhall. Fights, escapades, feasts and humor abound, along with lots of folksy British dialect. Redwall fans won't want to miss this latest fantasy, and those new to the series can easily pick it up here. Illustrated with b/w drawings. (Redwall series) Category: Hardcover Fiction.

Gr 5 Up-Once again, Jacques has created a wonderfully imaginative and beautifully realized universe, filled to the brim with amazing and amusing characters. Triss the squirrelmaid (spiritual heiress to Martin the Warrior) escapes slavery, chased by the evil princess Kurda and her band of hired Freebooters. At the same time, two young rips named Scarum and Sagax head off to sea with their friend Kroova the otter, looking for adventure (and finding rather more than they bargain for). Meanwhile, there is something very scary lurking in the woods around Redwall Abbey. Almost every character speaks in elaborate dialect and there are several independent stories that converge at the end, requiring readers' concentration. There are also a few fairly graphic (though not gratuitous) scenes of violence. While this 15th book in the series is perhaps not the best place to start, even readers unfamiliar with the earlier titles will never feel lost, for there are plenty of references to earlier books.-Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
