An Excellent Tale and Production

A wonderful telling of a classic tale of adventure and food. Redwall books are oft filled with adventures, battles, food, songs, and moments of peace. Mariel of Redwall is no exception to this and is a joy from start to finish.

The production brings this book to life in a wonderful way I was not expecting. All the characters are given rich voices that fit them. Even the songs within the book are sang and accompanied by instruments.

mastery of the stock characters

of all the books in the redwall series, this one has the best selection of characters, villians, heroes and sidekicks. the story itself is not as exciting as some of the other titles, but there is still some good action and it is a wonderful excuse to go romping around Moss flower with old friends!

great book; great quality

Great book. We have all of the reading books so far, and now we are working on the audio. The audio is really good. My only recommendation is to go with a 3 or 4 on download. Make it a 4 whenever possible. It is worth it.

Another spectacular performance!

Another all-around pleaser in story, singing, music, and cast performance. Full of adventure, heroism, and good over villainy. The little gibbons are hilarious and I love the hares’ properness, appetites, and loyalty. Absolutely loved it!

Amazingly amazing spectacularly spectacular

Mariel of Redwall is amazing because it is really well thought through and they do a wonderful performance. The story is a good adventure a tale of a mouse maid who wants to find her father, a mouse who doesn't want to stay in a abbey also a lovesick hare and finally a hedgehog who wants to see something before settling down as a seller hog. The whole mixture of all the characters is so good. Though it can be sudden when changing betwee

Every child should read the Redwall Series.

What made the experience of listening to Mariel of Redwall the most enjoyable?

I have read and followed the Redwall series since I was young. Each book brings you new characters, and old ones too. By reading the series you become part of the characters lives and understand the history behind the magnificent Abbey of Redwall.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the character of Mariel "Gullwacker". She is a fun character, courageous, a good friend and companion, and a role model to all (both young and old).

Which character – as performed by Brian Jacques and a full cast – was your favourite?

There is no one particular character who could be your favourite. Although the hairs and their war cry make it difficult to remember all characters are important.

Any additional comments?

Read the series.
