Description

New York Times bestselling author Brian Jacques masterfully recounts more woodland adventures in the seventh epic in the Redwall series!

It has been four seasons since Mariel, the warrior-mouse daughter of Joseph the Bellmaker, and her companion, Dandin, set off from Redwall to fight evil in Mossflower. Nothing has been heard of them since. Then one night, in a dream, the legendary Martin the Warrior comes to the Bellmaker with a mysterious message. Clearly, Mariel and Dandin are in grave danger. Joseph and four Redwallers set off at once to aid them. As they push over land and sea, they cannot know the terrible threats they face. Will the Bellmaker and his companions arrive in time to help Mariel and Dandin?

Praise For The Bellmaker: A Tale from Redwall

"This is storytelling at its best."—School Library Journal

"For the seventh volume of the Redwall series, Jacques sticks to the tried-and-true formula action aplenty and a huge cast of woodland creatures that has won him such a dedicated following . . . A seemingly endless stream of cliff-hangers and dazzling combat winds its way through lovingly described forest feasts."—Publishers Weekly
