Tribute to Brian Jacques


Thanks to fellow blogger, The Ink Slinger, I heard about the death of Brian Jacques. There's a sweet tribute at the Rabbit Room about this celebrated children's author. If you've never heard of him, the article describes him pretty well. When my children were small we loved the Redwall books. Our favorites were the audiobooks from the library that were narrated by Jacques himself. What a treat!

I've only read the first Redwall book, but I'm looking forward to checking the others out in the future. Brain Jacques fantasy world was brilliantly conceived! :)

My son LOVES the Redwall books. I was sad to hear of his passing. He created a fantastic world that you could truly get lost in, the mark of a first rate writer. RIP.

I've never read any of Jacques' books, never having been much of a fan of fantasy. However, I feel like I've missed something. I'm going to try to remedy that someday.

My children liked the Redwall books, and just this week my grandson told me that he is about to start reading one.
Thank you for all your reviews - I love them!
