The creatures of Redwall-the abbeymice and hares, otters and moles-are planning a surprise feast in their dear Abbot's honor. There is cake to be baked, marchpane to be rolled. Stirring and sifting, smoothing and brewing. Can everything be finished in time? And how can the Redwallers keep such a grand feast from their Abbot's keen eyes? Fans of Brian Jacques's beloved Redwall books will delight in seeing their old friends, brought to life by Christopher Denise's witty, cozy art. "Spirited and humorous... Denise's affectionate, detailed watercolors bring all the action to life." -Kirkus Reviews
The long, long verse is spirited and humorous, and Denise's affectionate, detailed watercolors bring all the action to life. The mentions of favorite characters seem intended for readers of the novels, but the book's real use may be to introduce a new generation to the Redwall family.

Any true redwall lover would read this no matter what their age. The Great Redwall Feast has some of the most adorable illustrations i have ever seen and i love the mole baby Bungo. Such a cute little trouble maker, dont you think? But where's Mattimeo, i thought that he would be in it. And dont you think the abbot is clever, he knew about the feast, i thought that was funny. Well i think that any redwall lover would like this book. Enjoy the Bobbatan Weary Nod!
I love Brian Jacques' books and I'm sure you would too. I started reading these books since last year and since I'm a bookworm my friends used to come to me to find some great books. I told them they should start with Brian Jacques' books. They're exciting and will make you want to never stop reading!
My favorite character in this book is Bungo because he fell into cake. He also cried when he had to get a bath. Heal also said he made all of the food.
