Today I was at one of the local thrift stores in search of books to add to my personal collection, as well as some to post here on PBS. After some time I came across a 10th Anniversary edition of Redwall by Brian Jacques. I decided to purchase this book for two reasons: 1. One of my best friends loves this series (even though he's in his early 20s) and 2. I enjoyed the book myself and seeing as how it's a popular series I thought it would be a welcome addition to my shelves. After arriving home, I posted books on this site and then started to put my own books away. I picked up Redwall, absently flipped through some pages, and noticed writing on the title page. There was a message presumably to a child from a parent (which you see often in books purchased at yard sales and thrift stores) but right below the title was a signature in blue ink. The signature of Brian Jacques. I bought a book signed by him for $1. I could not believe it and still can't!
I just had to share this story with other book lovers. : )
I am 38 and found the Redwall series when I was 33. I love how Jacques paints such a vivid picture of the characters.
Some say that series are more childrens lit. I say they are beautifully written and I enjoy them all.
Now if I could find a copy of the Cook book!
I agree with Theresa, an excellent find!
