Redwall Series - Great Series for Kids
This was the series that really got me into reading when I was young, I used to devour these whenever they came out. Did anyone else read these growing up?

To any parents trying to get their kids into reading, I can't recommend these books enough. All around excellent and wholesome books that are fantastic reads.

We donated my copies growing up to a public school book drive, but I just bought Mossflower used for like $4.00 online. Looking forward to reading it as an adult.

Ya I can still remember the general storyline from a few of them 20 years later. Really excited for it to come in the mail.

So I was just reading a bit about the Redwall series - and they made a cartoon about Redwall and one of the other books at some point.

I read them all out of order when i was a kid but liked them. Muriel and Salamandastron were my favorites

re: Redwall Series - Great Series for Kids
Mossflower was my favorite I think - read about 1/2 of it last night. Salamandastron and Mariel worth both great as well, Lord Brocktree is another one I remember. Pearls of Lutra, Marlfox, the Long Patrol all stick out.

Really surprised at how well it holds up reading Mossflower. Obviously a lot of the characters are grouped into their own tropes, but even so - some of the characters are struggling with breaking out of being raised by evil, one of the evil wildcat lords is good, etc. He glosses over death a decent bit for obvious reasons.

But his descriptive prose is absolutely excellent.

Just googling it, looks like about 4 or so more came out after I quit grabbing every installment. May have to work my way through them coming up.

They hold up for adults . Some were pretty heavy for kids. I got to meet Jacques when I was a kid. He was awesome.

re: Redwall Series - Great Series for Kids
Damn that is awesome, ya I definitely cried reading one as a kid one time. But reading something like this when you are younger that is a bit more nuanced probably helps a whole lot with your reading level. Definitely one of the things that really got me into reading a lot.

Mosaflower is definitely holding up.

Abebooks.com has great deals on used books. Got a hardback copy for like $4 - going to slowly build my collection of these back.

I tried to read it in order but those two were my favorites as well. Very fun to read.

re: Redwall Series - Great Series for Kids
My daughter loved Redwall when she was 2yo.

So much so that my wife made her a homemade Redwall playset and made up a song based on the theme music.

Mathias saw Martin on the wall...
He said I am that is
La lala la...Redwall

After this topic, I went basement searching for my book. Forgot I met Brian in middle school when he came to our school in Alaska.

re: Redwall Series - Great Series for Kids
I LOVED Redwall and Mattimeo as a kid. I never was able to read any outside of those no matter how hard I tried, though. The characters didn't grab me like the ones in those books did.

re: Redwall Series - Great Series for Kids
Those two weren't my favorites, more middle of the road for em - but you do get to stick with the familiar characters a good bit. I always loved Mossflower the most but enjoyed them all.
