Choose any Brian Jacques book and have a wonderful read! These books are for children (middle-school age), but are great for adults too. If your kids are reading them, have a look yourself. You won't be disappointed. They're beautifully written, have exciting plots and a depth of meaning that's for all ages. A fabulous alternative to Harry Potter. Why a movie has never been made of any of these, I don't know.
The second book in this series, but actually the prequel to book one, the story of Martin. I highly recommend this book for teens and adults alike. You can't help but be swept up into this very charming fantasy series and cheer heartily for Mossflower!
