The Long Patrol (A Tale of Redwall) by Brian Jacques

Author Brian Jacques sadly passed away in February this year but he has left a wealth a wonderful literature behind. I think this is the best of the Redwall books. In this story Tammo, a young hare, runs away from home only to find himself in the Long Patrol, a group of hares who fight evil. Damug Warfang , an evil rat is endeavouring to take over a peaceful woodland region known as Mossflower. Damug and his thousand vermin attack the Long Patrol. There are many battles in the book and good doesn’t always win out! The characters are developed well and the book abounds with descriptive narrative. Some of the books in the Redwall series were made into a television series. Here is episode 1:
