Brian Jacques, Author of Redwall, Dies at 71

“British author Brian Jacques, who wrote the “Redwall” (Penguin) adventure series, died of a sudden heart attack on February 5 in Liverpool, England. He was 71.”

“The world has lost not only a talented author, but a truly gifted entertainer and champion of children,” says Philomel’s Green. “For almost 25 years, Brian Jacques lived up to the label of ‘master storyteller.’ His Redwall novels have touched multi-generations within families and given them something to share, a legacy at which one can only marvel and smile.”
