Eulalia! (Redwall #19)
by Brian Jacques
Lord Asheye of Salamandastron has a prophecy: A new Badger Lord must take his place and reign over the legendary badger fortress. But who is this young warrior who shuns both armor and sword? And how is he to be found? Mad Maudie, a feisty haremaid of the Long Patrol, is just the one to track him down. Meanwhile, the unsuspecting future Badger Lord has been captured by a scurrilous group of Sea Raiders led by the infamous fox, Vizka Longtooth, who intends on conquering Redwall Abbey. It is up to our young hero to defend Redwall so that he may fulfill his destiny as leader of Salamandastron.

Aspiring Redwall Characters Take Note...

Jacques says some of his tales are based on real life stories from war and the sea. But real life crops up in smaller ways, too: "Many characters are drawn from his fans from around the world," he says on his web site. "Samkim is Samantha Kim. Arula is Laura, a fan who sent in a whole list of reasons why she would make a great character."

The Great Redwall Feast
by Brian Jacques, Christopher Denise (Illustrator)
Jacques created this picturebook and another, A Redwall Winter's Tale, both of which take place outside the series storyline and offer a lighter, verse-based visit with Redwall Abbey and its inhabitants. Here, the animals prepare a surprise feast in honor of the abbot.
