Editorial review :
Preparations for the feast for the Summer of the Golden Rain are underway
at Redwall Abbey, and young Mattimeo's mother sets him to work with the
other inhabitants. His father, Mathius, is the guardian of Redwall Abbey
and it is this fact that puts the young Mattimeo in danger, as the evil
Slagar the Fox plots to kidnap him in a bid to shake the very foundations
of the Abbey and its inhabitants.
Rip-roaring adventure at its very best, Mattimeo is one of the exquisitely executed and totally bewitching tales in the best-selling Redwall series. Brian Jacques, with his masterly use of language and enviable talent for descriptive prose that transports the reader to the very heart of Redwall, magically weaves an epic tale breathtaking in proportion and design. Utterly addictive, Mattimeo is packed with so much color, passion, fury, and love that it will leave readers desperate for more.
