Redwall by Brian Jacques was one of the first fantasy novels I’d ever read. The dog-eared copy still sits on my shelf and I read it every year or so. It’s a wonderful book and I have enjoyed it tremendously no matter my age.
How much have I enjoyed it? On the wall of my office hangs a collection of book covers in frames. Each one comes from a book that I believe has had a huge impact on me as a writer and a reader. The above cover is on the right side and in the center.
Brian Jacques died today at the age of 71. Pardon me for having a bit of something in my eye.
