The Rogue Crew cover

Penguin has released their Summer 2011 catalog, and with it we have the official cover for The Rogue Crew, a new summary, and more details surrounding the release.

First, the book is to be 400 pages, and it looks like we can count on some updates occurring over at The Redwall Experience next year.

Second, if the catalog is to be considered accurate, Brian Jacques will be embarking on a US tour (his first since 2008) to promote the new book!

And finally, the new summary:

Nobeast is safe from the terror of a Wearat!
Redwall Abbey has never seen a creature more evil or more hideous than Razzid Wearat. Captain of the Greenshroud, a ship with wheels that can sail through water as well as the forest, this beast is a terror of both land and sea, traveling Mossflower Country, killing nearly everything—and everyone— in his path. And his goal? To conquer Redwall Abbey. From Salamandastron to the High North Coast, the brave hares of the Long Patrol team up with the fearless sea otters of the Rogue Crew to form a pack so tough, so rough, only they can defend the abbey and defeat Razzid Wearat once and for all.

Still seems to be foggy in regards to if Razzid Wearat is actually a Wearet, but it seems like technology is finally advancing in Mossflower, as we have the first "tank" of sorts appearing. Glad to see BJ always adding something original to the stories.

The Rogue Crew is scheduled for release on May 3, 2011.
