The Redwall series by Brian Jacques is a wonderful group of stories. All twenty-two books are about a world filled with animals that talk. They are fantasy books written for ages ten and up, but I read them all as an adult and loved them.
I wasn't blogging back then, so no reviews, but they are so worth the time! I know that 22 books is quite an undertaking, but you won't regret giving these stories a try.
They are magical.
