I'm almost done with the entire Redwall series. Just need to finish this and Doomwyte. This series is really what made my love for reading explode. And though I have outgrown most of its childish predictable plots, I still keep this series close to my heart. RIP Brian.

Redwall Graphic Novel
Redwall: The Graphic Novel - Stuart Moore,Bret Blevins,Brian Jacques

I got this for $1 at the Metro Library Book Sale. I had no idea they ever made a graphic novel of Redwall, so I was excited. But given how thin the book was I had my worries. And it turned out to be what I feared. They condensed this far too much. Numerous characters were glossed over or left out. They didn't even mention otters, who are major creatures in Mossflower. Moles, especially Foremole, was only seen on one page. Some dialogue was hard to understand, and some panels were convoluted. This really needed to be at least 50 pages longer to fully flesh out any Redwall tale. We even cut the ending rather short so you didn't even have time to fully grieve for those lost in the final battle. Just a neat bow on things.

April Showers TBR
Redwall: The Graphic Novel - Stuart Moore,Bret Blevins,Brian Jacques
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - Deborah Moggach
The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini
Sisters of Heart and Snow - Margaret Dilloway
Secret Vampire (Night World, #1) - L.J. Smith
Clash of Eagles - Alan Smale

Well, this month was going to be April Showers, so it was supposed to be dedicated to sad and emotional books. But then we had the Great Bedroom Flood of 2018, which ruined SOOOOOO MANY of my books. The bottoms of most of my graphic novels and several unread novels were soaked, causing the pages to warp, discolor and stick together. I wasn't too upset about the ones I had already read, but some of these books were brand new or just purchased at the Metro Book Sale. 

 

So, now April Showers means floods and water in the literal sense. I'm going to read the few books I salvaged that needed reading. Hopefully the pages aren't too stuck together. 

 

Before I read these I swear I will get through Envy and Splendor. I SWEAR. 

 

Also, Oklahoma teachers on strike. And I am behind them all the way. Teachers need better pay and our schools need more money! Oklahoma ranks 49th in the country in education. 

 

P.S. Friday was a terrible day. Saturday wasn't. Sunday was even better. Hope you guys are having a pretty good go of things.

My Review of Redwall
Redwall - Gary Chalk,Brian Jacques

Redwall by Brian Jacques is the first installment of the series Redwall. Redwall Abbey is home to peaceful mice, and other woodland creatures. When their abbey is threatened by Cluny the Scourge, the peaceful residents of Redwall Abbey have to defend, and fight for what they hold dear.

 

I absolutely adored this story! The creatures came to life on the pages, and the world building is quite beautiful. This story grabbed me, and wouldn't let go. There were moments when I laughed out loud, and there were moments when my heart was broken. There were a few grammatical errors, but did not hinder my flow of reading at all. This is a wonderful middle grade fantasy story; I highly recommend it.
