Brian Jacques, creator of the Redwall universe, passed away on February 5, 2011. His work reached across age and cultural boundaries, and made avid readers of the most reluctant-to-learn. His official website was started by an 11-year-old fan – how can you not love that?

I’ve spent the past few hours re-reading Redwall. A few gems:

“Knowledge is a thing that one cannot have enough of. It is the fruit of wisdom, to be eaten carefully & digested fully,” Brother Methuselah, REDWALL

“The mice of Redwall Abbey were peaceful creatures, but that must not be taken as a sign of weakness.” REDWALL

“Forty seasons now, and forty seasons hence, if fate and fortune permit, I will still be inviting you all to continue the saga of Redwall. Come with me, my Warriors, off on the trail of high old adventure!” – Brian Jacques, Recorder of Redwall Abbey, Mossflower Country
