"A grand adventure story. Once the reader is hooked, there is no peace until the final page." - Chicago Sun-Times

"Redwall is both an incredible and ingratiating place, one to which readers will doubtless cheerfully return." - New York Times Book Review

"Only a churl would reject this morality play in fur." - Kirkus Reviews

"Filled with the kind of vibrant storytelling that fans of Jacques have come to expect. His dialogue is lively and delightful to read aloud...so rich in detail that the sights and sounds and smells of the adventure pull the reader in." - Grand Rapids Press (MI)

"A richly imagined world in which bloody battles vie for attention with copious feasting and tender romancing. Where males and females are heroes and warriors. Where the young triumph and the old endure. Where intelligence is as valued as strength and wit is frequently more important than size...[Jacques] continues to surprise and delight with intriguing plots and fresh faces." - Cincinnati Enquirer

"The Knights of the Round Table with paws." - The Sunday Times (London)
