    I remember reading the first one but I don't think I ever got around to finishing it.

    I really loved these books as a child. I used to follow them religiously. I've read all of them up through The Legend of Luke. I think they're really good through Martin the Warrior; after that they start to get a bit repetitive for me. By the time I was getting into my teenage years I found them beginning to get tiresome; I don't know if this is because I was too old for them or because the series was just beginning to run out of ideas or what. Still do treasure the memory of those first several books, though.

    Bad books to read when you're hungry.

    Edit: Out of curiosity, why isn't this in the Books and Comics forum? I think there was an animated movie done at some point, but I for one am much more interested in talking about the books.

    There's an animated cartoon series that they seem to like to show on PBS, IIRC. I've caught it a couple of times.

    As for the books, I think I got as far as Outcast of Redwall. After that, I didn't have the time to keep up with any of the books I was reading. That said, it was a nice series and I like it.

    Whoops, I posted this in the wrong place. Can someone move it over?
