Preparations for the feast for the Summer of the Golden Rain are underway at Redwall Abbey, and young Mattimeo's mother sets him to work with the other inhabitants. His father, Matthius, is the guardian of Redwall Abbey and it is this fact that puts the young Mattimeo in danger, as the evil Slagar the Fox plots to kidnap him in a bid to shake the very foundations of the Abbey and its inhabitants.
Rip-roaring adventure at its very best, Mattimeo is one of the exquisitely executed and totally bewitching tales in the best-selling Redwall series. Brian Jacques, with his masterly use of language and enviable talent for descriptive prose that transports the reader to the very heart of Redwall, magically weaves an epic tale breathtaking in proportion and design. Utterly addictive, Mattimeo is packed with so much color, passion, fury, and love that it will leave readers desperate for more. --Susan Harrison --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Publishers Weekly
Among the woodland animals absconded from Redwall Abbey by Slagar the fox is Mattimeo, son of the warrior mouse Matthias. PW said, "This final book in the Redwall trilogy is a truly thrilling conclusion to a swashbuckling, heroic adventure. The realistically drawn characters are full of personality." Ages 10-14.

I love how their character is developed through the things they encounter, and they are stretched beyond what they ever dreamed they could endure, let alone overcome. This is one of the themes I'm seeing in Redwall (that I particularly appreciate): sterling character is held high, yet imperfect "people" (beasts) are given grace at Redwall to fail and learn and grow from it. Things are attempted, against impossible odds, because it's the right thing to do, regardless of whether there is any chance of succeeding. Our world needs this so desperately today!
Character development is rich and effortless in this series! Individuals are so vibrantly portrayed that I have to remind myself that this is fantasy and these are animals and not people that I know. Still, I feel they are friends. I hope many others will come to treasure this series and strive to uphold the universal ideals presented, of goodness, strength of character, kindness, and doing what's right, even against impossible odds.
Our family loved the Redwall series back in the 1990s. We started in about 2nd or 3rd grade as read-to books. Very imaginative characters. This is a great way to learn about Medieval times using personification of animals as the characters. Great vocabulary builder. Soon became read alone books for my son, but we still enjoyed reading aloud together as a family due to the engaging story and memorable characters who move forward into the next book. (Violence refers to battles of animal groups - done with a Medieval Times theme.)
THE STORY IS G R E A T TO CUDDLE UP AND READ WITH DIFFERENT VOICES
it has drama, it has suspense, it has action, it has sadness, it has happiness, it has humor, there are so many things that this book has going for it! yes it may be classified as a children's book, but I am not the only adult to read & enjoy & be hooked on this series of books.
From page one, it grabs your attention & it never lets go till the end...but then it is really not the end because when you begin to read the next book, it too, gets you hooked from Page 1.
I highly recommend this book & the series(22 books in all) to anyone, adult or younger, who likes a great story of how the hero saves the day with his charm, his humor & his bravery.
