"In our imaginations we can go anywhere. Travel with me to Redwall in Mossflower country." ~ Brian Jacques 1939-2011


  1. Never heard of this book. I will look into it :)

    1. It is a series, and all the inhabitants are animals, who have great adventures and lovely quiet times. My favorites are the hares.

  2. Now that is a list of favorites. Yesterday my niece stopped by for lunch and she mentioned a Netflix film that speaks to vegetarianism. I have cut way down on my meat consumption and I told her if she she went that way it would be an easy leap for me and we could change recipes. I think some of your favorites look like a good place to start.

    1. there is a Redwall cookbook out. That list is favorites of the Redwall inhabitants. I eat little meat but don't try to take my cheese away!

    2. That's what I told my niece. Meat, no problem. Don't ask me to give up cheese.

  3. I can't believe I've never read this series!

  4. An enchanting list - make mine squirrelmum's blackberry and apple by the sycamore tree I can't believe I've never heard of this. Sounds like the perfect read for me right now :)
