Brian Jacques

Brian Jacques – actor, playwright and BBC presenter – was first brought to the attention of children with the publication of Redwall, the first volume in his epic series. Before he began writing for children, his life was as full of adventure as the stories he creates – at the age of fifteen he went to sea and travelled the world, before returning to his home town of Liverpool in England, where he still lives. In 2005 Brian Jacques was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Letters from the University of Liverpool.
