Brian Jacques – RIP

We were very sad to read of the death of Brian Jacques, author of the Redwall series. Read his obituary in the New York Times HERE. We are big fans of Mr. Jacques series, and have read all except the newest The Sable Queen. Try the audio versions; Brian Jacques narrates, and a group of friends do the voices and sing the songs. Long live Redwall!
