Brian Jacques Redwall is now available in a graphic novel format. The story was adapted by Stuart Moore with beautiful black and white illustrations by Bret Blevins. Having never read the Redwall books, this was an opportunity for me to be introduced to the popular series. I fell in love with the character of Matthias at the beginning when he was whistling a tune and stumbled, dropping his basket of apples. I enjoyed seeing him change from a slightly clumsy little mouse into a true warrior. When Redwall Abbey is under attack by Cluny the terrible rat, Matthias begins a journey to retrieve the sword of the great warrior, Martin. A motley crew of woodland animals aids Matthias on his quest and everyone worked together to save Redwall.
