Ah, another Redwall book. After doing so much homework, my brain appreciates these books. (Not that they lack subtlety, or any sort of message, but for the most part, it's happy, enjoyable fluff about woodland creatures. And that makes me happy.) In Mattimeo, Matthias' son, along with other children from the Abbey, are kidnapped by the sly fox, Slagar, who is bent to see his revenge carried out against Redwall. In this tale, we follow some of our old friends, Matthias and Jess and Basil and we make some new ones as well, as parents join together to find and free their children. It's standard Redwall fare with adventures and battles and feasts. While every book in the series would still be a good story on its own, I think what makes these books so interesting is seeing the connections between the different times in each book, and seeing how the generations change. You see the bounding, ever hungry hare, and know, "That character must be related somehow to Basil..." or some other such thing. There is a lot of history with the Abbey that can be explored, and now that we've read of the Abbey's beginnings in Mossflower, and it's "present-day" adventures in Redwall and now Mattimeo, I'm sure there are still a lot of stories to be told.

As always, Brian Jacques paints a glorious picture in this tale of Redwall. Mattimeo is the very first one I ever read of his, many years ago, and it is responsible for my huge fandom towards the series today. Slagar is one of my three favorite Redwall villains. You'll really like this.

Great book and the second in an amazing set that has 20 books. Brian is a great author and deserves to be well recognized for his work. Read all of the Redwall books to know what I mean.

This was the second Redwall book I've read... I loved it! From the cheeky otter Cheek, to the witty Mattimeo with his gang, to 'SissyMay' to the Ghost that haunts the Abbey, it was a great read (except for that whining little Cynthia Bankvole ;) once the innocently young Tim, Tess and Mattimeo were captured by the evil Slagar the Cruel, it was hard to put the book down! You can't help but feel the energy when the Sparra Queen dashes recklessly into battle to save Matthias, or the desperation when the brave Cornflower is taken hostage along with Mrs. Churchmouse and Baby Rollo... I fully recommend this book for any book-loving animal-freak, or just anybody who loves to be transported to another world through the pages of a book!

Mattimeo, the son of the warrior mouse Matthias, learns to take up the sword and joins the other animal inhabitants of Redwall Abbey in resisting Slagar the fox and his band of marauders. Sequel to "Redwall."

Slagar the fox hated Redwall Abbey - its peaceable creatures, its fearless mouse warrior Matthias. He blamed Matthias for the injuries he's suffered...but his quest for vengeance would have to be a cunning one, for he knew the power of the legendary Redwall sword.

Above all, he knew, the Redwallers cherished their young. So Slagar would steal them from under their very noses - and the greatest prize of all would be Matthia's headstrong son, Mattimeo.

We've had this book for a long time. The pages are intact and the book is readable, but the book has some obvious signs of age.
