In Memorium

On February 5, Brian Jacques, author of the wildly popular Redwall series, passed away at the age of 71. Redwall is one of my most favorite books and the series is, in my opinion, one of the best for children and young adults. The characters, the setting, the history, the FOOD...it's Lord of the Rings meets Wind in the Willows in every sense. The now final book in the series, The Rogue Crew, will be released on May 3.
