Doomwyte

Summary

The twentieth book in the beloved, bestselling Redwall saga - soon to be a major Netflix movie!

When young mouse Bisky persuades the inhabitants of Redwall Abbey to go in search of the stolen jewelled eyes of the Great Doomwyte Idol of long ago, he has no idea that the fearsome Korvus Skurr, the black-feathered raven and his gang, are vying for that very same treasure.

All too soon the brave Redwallers find themselves in the grips of adventure, solving mysterious riddles and battling villainous foes. From underground tunnels to the tops of trees, the fearless Redwallers unite with the tribes of the Guosim and Gonfelin against vermin, carrion and the dangerous, sinister Wytes on the most terrifying treasure hunt ever.

Brian Jacques is one of Britain's best-loved storytellers - and Redwall is his most famous creation.
