Another year, another research paper. And once again, I did it on Brian Jacques (I go to a different school now, so it doesn't matter that I'm doing it again). A little more detailed this time, I had to read two of his books, do summaries and critiques of each and a compare/contrast paper, along with researching him.
Oh well. Here we go...

Brian Jacques Researching the Writer
Redwall is, in my opinion, the best book series I have read. Brian Jacques is the author of this amazing series.
