Half-Price Books is getting to be a dangerous place for me. Seems that everytime I walk in there I have to come out with something and on a recent trip I stumbled upon a good, sturdy, hardcover copy of Brian Jacques Redwall for ~ $6 that I quickly decided needed to come home with me. The good news, however, is that if I’m going to randomly stumble upon a book or two (or three) — then at least it doesn’t necessarily break the bank.
Anyhow, I’ve heard nothing but high praise for Brian Jacques Redwall, and while it could present something of a problem that there are so many books in the series should I find myself engrossed in the tale, I suppose it’s one of life’s better problems isn’t it? On his official website, Jacques welcomes readers with the message that “in our imaginations we can go anywhere,” inviting us then to travel with him to “Redwall in Mossflower country.” Glad that even as a big kid, I’m finally getting the chance to visit the place that so many people have sung praises about.
Look for a follow-up on the book one of these days. When you least expect it, I imagine.
