I was first introduced to this book when I was about nine and the moment I picked it up I couldn't put it down, I just had to finish it! A very intriguing series, even though it is about sword welding mice, Brian Jacques, makes it fun and adventurous. The story starts with a young mouse in an Abbey longing for adventure, never expecting that he would actually end up in one, when the Abbey is attacked by a hoard of sea rats! Read to find out how he and his friends, Cornflower, Basil and Constance, just to name a few, help protect the peaceful Abbey. Great story to read to younger siblings, and to add to the fun make sure to read it with an accent! Even if it’s not completely correct, my siblings seem to enjoy it none the less.
