A Redwall Winter’s Tale

My rating: 4 of 5

It’s the last day of autumn, and everybeast at Redwall Abbey is preparing for a feast–and for the coming winter. The evening brings a troupe of traveling entertainers who join in the festivities. During the night, the children’s bedtime story becomes reality as a blanket of new snow welcomes the winter–and invites a day-long romp!

A Redwall Winter’s Tale is classic Brian Jacques, but boiled down to suit a younger audience. You can feel his love of children throughout the story. The tale and characters are warm, simple, and inviting. Moreover, Christopher Denise’s art is a beautiful complement to the writing style. Altogether, this is a delightful picture book for both children and older readers.
