Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Jacques’ fans will be tickled by the characters’ goofy slapstick regardless of their genus.”  Publishers Weekly
“The palette of British Isle accents, from Scottish brogue to Irish lilt and British aristocrat, helps sustain interest and atmosphere. This dramatized presentation enhances a complex adventure tale.”  Booklist
“Jacques is a masterful storyteller, keeping the listener’s rapt attention with vocal inflections and vivid characterizations. Additional readers add variety and color at every turn of events.”   AudioFile
“Legend and magical elements enliven this melodramatic and sentimental tale, which will undoubtedly be beloved by Redwall fans.”   Kirkus Reviews
