“I sometimes think it ironic for an ex-seaman, longshoreman, truck driver, policeman, bus driver, etc. . . to find success writing children's novels,” says Brian Jacques (pronounced “Jakes”). Yet it is all too true. Since the publication of his first children's book, the award-winning Redwall, in 1987, Jacques' fresh talent has received exceptional praise from reviewers in the United States and England. Newbery Award-winner Lloyd Alexander called Redwall “a fine work, literate, witty, filled with the excitement of genuine storytelling. Young people will surely be captivated. I hope they give their elders a chance to share the delights.” A well-known radio personality in his native Liverpool — as well as an actor, stand-up comic, and playwright — Brian Jacques is the host of “Jakestown” on BBC Radio Merseyside. Ever the performer, Jacques is well-known for applying his acting and entertainment background in his presentations to legions of young fans at schools across the United States and England.
