I see some reports of language like hell’s teeth, hell and damn. Some violence.

Recommended for grades 5 and up.

A hugely entertaining book of high adventure. About a peaceful abbey fighting back against a rodent hoard, as they gain more allies in their fight, like the amusing basil. It's an highly enjoyable read, that took me no time to finish. ( )

Welcome to Mossflower Wood, where the gentle mice have gathered to celebrate a year of peace and abundance. All is well...until a sinister shadow falls across the ancient stone abbey of Redwall. It is rumored that Cluny is coming--Cluny, the terrible one-eyed rat and his savage horde--Cluny, who has vowed to conquer Redwall Abbey! The only hope for the besieged mice lies in the lost sword of the legendary Martin the Warrior. And so begins the epic quest of a bumbling young apprentice--a courageous mouse who would rise up, fight back...and become a legend himself.

I knew this was about a mouse war, but I honestly did not expect the entire novel to be about war, which just is not my thing. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
It was the start of the Summer of the Late Rose. (Prologue)
Matthias cut a comical little figure as he wobbled his way along the cloisters, with his large sandals flip-flopping and his tail peeping from beneath the baggy folds of an oversized novice's habit.

Book description
The mice of Redwall Abbey must defend themselves against the invasion of Cluny the Scourge, a rat with ambitions of power and cruelty. In this novel of epic battle, peaceful creatures band together to defeat the enemy -- but they never lose their awareness that they are not made for violence. A young mouse, Matthias, finds his true calling as a leader-warrior and defender of the Abbey.

An enjoyable story, for advanced intermediate readers (could be a readaloud for this age group) or junior high and up.
