Read full description of the books:
Okay, so there was the badger, I think, and he had some bloodlust, being a badger, and maybe his family died? And he set off on a great quest to defeat all the vermin overlords of the north? And then some hares showed up and were funny and ate everything and said "Wot" a lot (hares being the generally insatiable comic relief in these novels. Yes, they also speak in cockney), and there was probably a description of a feast that made me hungry and sad that I didn't live in the UK where it is common to eat mushroom pasties and cordial and great blocks of cheese with nuts studded all over them (he always used the word 'studded') and is this good enough Tim? I read this when I was about 10 years old and all of the books just seem to run together, but basically, they're about woodland creatures defeating vermin overlords. The antagonist is always a weasely ferret, or a ferrety weasel, or a pirate stoat with one eye and a wooden leg, or a fox. Tim, although it is probable that you just requested this for laughs, if you are going to read a Redwall book, read "Martin the Warrior" and then read "Redwall."
10 year old me.

Read information about the authorBrian Jacques (pronounced 'jakes') was born in Liverpool, England on June 15th, 1939. Along with forty percent of the population of Liverpool, his ancestral roots are in Ireland, County Cork to be exact.
Brian grew up in the area around the Liverpool docks, where he attended St. John's School, an inner city school featuring a playground on its roof. At the age of ten, his very first day at St. John's foreshadowed his future career as an author; given an assignment to write a story about animals, he wrote a short story about a bird who cleaned a crocodile's teeth. Brian's teacher could not, and would not believe that a ten year old could write so well. When young Brian refused to falsely say that he had copied the story, he was caned as "a liar". He had always loved to write, but it was only then that he realized he had a talent for it.
He wrote Redwall for the children at the Royal Wavertree School for the Blind in Liverpool, where as a truck driver, he delivered milk. Because of the nature of his first audience, he made his style of writing as descriptive as possible, painting pictures with words so that the schoolchildren could see them in their imaginations. He remained a patron of the school until his death.
Brian lived in Liverpool, where his two grown sons, Marc, a carpenter and bricklayer, and David, a professor of Art and a muralist, still reside. David Jacques' work can be seen in Children's hospitals, soccer stadiums, and trade union offices as far away as Germany, Mexico, and Chile (not to mention Brian's photo featured in most of his books).
Brian also ran a weekly radio show on BBC Radio Merseyside, until October 2006, where he shared his comedy and wit, and played his favourites from the world of opera - he was a veritable expert on The Three Tenors.
When he was wasn't writing, Brian enjoyed walking his dog 'Teddy', a white West Highland Terrier, and completing crossword puzzles. When he found time he read the works of Mario Puzo, Damon Runyon, Richard Condon, Larry McMurty, and P.G. Wodehouse. He was also known to cook an impressive version of his favourite dish, spaghetti and meatballs.
Sadly, Brian passed away on the 5th February 2011.
