Outcast of Redwall
Outcast of Redwall is another book in the Redwall series written for children by the late Brian Jacques, but also read by many adults too including me. Years ago, every time Brian brought out another book I would be there to buy it. I am proud to have them on my bookshelves and have read them all, most of them more than once. The ultimate triumph of good over evil is always the main theme running through all of the Redwall series.
Brian never shied away with difficult concepts in his books even though he was writing for young people. This particular book tells the tale of ‘Sunflash the Mace’ a badger and his wicked adversary Swartt Sixclaw There is a long standing feud between these two.
Ideally to get the full picture of why this feud is so bitter and ongoing, readers will have read right through from the very first book in the series . However it isn’t necessary as each one can be read on its own too.
Running alongside the continuing battles between these two there are two more tales both of them relating to Veil who is Swartt’s son and was left behind as a baby in one of his father’s battles and was rescued and brought up by young Byrony the mouse maid... one of the Redwallers. A third part brings everything in the story together, but I am reluctant to say too much more because of spoilers. Sufficient to say in this story as in all of Brian’s books there are morals and maxims behind all that goes on to make children and probably adults too stop and ponder. I am a big fan of these books and also Erin Hunter’s books about wild cats also for young people but read by fans like me. They are easy reads because of the age groups they are written for but most enjoyable if you like animal stories. They are not as sophisticated as the Duncton Wood series but I recommend them highly.

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.
