Redwall books. I was addicted to them as a kid and have almost all of them.

I re read Taggerung first, and Im starting another one this evening once I pick. Brian Jacques storytelling really holds up, although he does tend to go on and on about food for pages and pages at a time.

Come on, the food descriptions are rad. Those books turned me onto scones.

One of my favorite memories is my mom reading me Redwall before bed. My oldest daughter has another year before she's ready, and then I plan on doing the same.

Yeah but when I'm actively avoiding carbohydrates I don't need 10 pages of descriptions of baked goods.

I loved Taggerung, the guys was absolutely badass. Maybe I'll re-read some of the books as well, if I remember correctly, Salamandastron should still be great.
