Overview

The Bellmaker (Redwall Series #7) by Brian Jacques

More than four seasons have passed since Mariel the Warriormouse and the rogue mouse, Dandin, set off from Redwall in search of adventure, and Joseph the Bellmaker is worried. Where is his beloved daughter? Joseph's answer comes to him in a dream, and soon he's off, accompanied by the intrepid Finnbarr Galedeep and the brave crew of the good ship, Pearl Queen, to save a kingdom and rescue Mariel.

But what's behind the riddle in the dream? Can Joseph guess its meaning and find his daughter before the dreaded Foxwolf, Urgan Nagru, plunders the kingdom of Southsward? Can this be the end of Mariel the Warriormouse? The momentous questions of this seventh epic in the Redwall series will hold a new audience of readers in its magical spell and captivate dedicated Redwall followers as well.

When I choose this book I saw that there were mice and otters on the cover. The mice and otters were carrying swords so I thought the book would have a lot of excitement in it. I figured there would be plenty of sword fights and exciting travels. After I reviewed all this I knew that this book would be full of action. I love action packed stories. In the book, a dead mouse gives riddles to mice in their dreams. He is a special mouse who built Redwall abbey. He gave Joseph The Bellmaker a riddle so that the Redwallers could help fellow mice Mariel and Dandin. The other mice try to help figure out the riddle also. When they finally figure it out, five mice need to go and help the others in trouble, but one will not come back. When I read this I thought that Joseph wasn't going to come back but I was wrong. Instead one of their friends that they meet on their journey died in action. Now this is all I'll tell you, you'll have to find the rest out on your own. If you read this story, you may agree with me that it is the best action story you have ever read. Make sure when you read it, you have plenty of uninterrupted time because you won't want to put the book down. It is a real page turner. This book is great animal fiction. I recommend it for ages 11 to 14 years of age. Don't be surprised on how the book turns out, just read the story.

The Bellmaker is one of my favorites, along with its prequel Mariel of Redwall. My favorite part of the book is the vivid characters. It is unusual to have so many characters in two Redwall books, as Brian Jaques typically spaces them farther apart in time. But it is a treat to get to know new characters like Finnbarr Galedeep and King Gael and his friends, while catching up with old familiars like Tarquin and Hon Rosie and their 12 leverets, and the now Abbott Saxtus, and of course Dandin and Mariel. This book ventures outside of Mossflower woods to Southsward, a place just as magical. Readers will be rewarded with a sweet, emotional, and exciting story.

This book proved to be my favorite of Brian Jacques' enchanting series. I haven't read all of them, but of the ones I have, this is on top. I loved how Joseph wasn't the cliche 'brave hero' standing up to evil. He was a simple bellmaker, and I think that added a nice twist. I especially loved the portion of this book spent at sea, as the author is so knowledgable when it comes to that sort of thing. Anyone who reads Redwall books needs to pick this one up right away!

I loved this book when i read it. Still do, but i had a problem with it. In Marriel of Redwall Ruff Brush was all battlish and acted like a warrior. But for some reason, BJ decided to turn him into a weenie for this book. It just doesn't make sense. I was very disappointed because Ruff had been my favorite character in Mariel. His character was practically ruined. Worth readin' though.

It was the best of the series and I think that Finnbar Galedeep was the best character too. It was so cool when Finn moved the ship around the green maelstrom was awesome and when Nagru got killed it was even better.

You should definitely read the book called ¿The Bellmaker.¿ It was a very exiting book. There were a lot of battle scenes where defeating your enemies and surviving were the only things on your mind. The characters were also fun to watch throughout the story. An exciting battle was when Joseph and his friends had to do battle with the evil Foxwolf and his horde of vermin. The author Brian Jacques described every detail of the story. He paints a picture of the characters and the settings of the story. It was a very smart book. The characters were very witty. They thought up plans to defeat their enemies. Joseph and all the characters were very smart. Therefore you should read the book called ¿The Bellmaker.¿
