Redwall (Book 1, Redwall) by Brian Jacques, a modern classic, is FREE in ebook format on Amazon today. I don't know how long that price will last. I have fond memories of the kids who devoured this series while I was working in the Burbank Library.
And I think it fits well enough on the blog since these types of books are inheritors of fairy tales and fables, IMHO.
As the inhabitants of Redwall Abbey bask in the glorious Summer of the Late Rose, all is quiet and peaceful. But things are not as they seem. Cluny the Scourge, the evil one-eyed rat warlord, is hell-bent on destroying the tranquility as he prepares to fight a bloody battle for the ownership of Redwall.
This dazzling story in the Redwall series is packed with all the wit, wisdom, humor, and blood-curdling adventure of the other books in the collection, but has the added bonus of taking the reader right back to the heart and soul of Redwall Abbey and the characters who live there.
