Brian Jacques Signs Off

Brian Jaques
1939-2011

You filled hours of my life with stories.
Thanks for getting kids reading, for your great descriptions, your humor, your love for writing, and your awesome accent.
You will be missed. Goodbye, Brian Jaques.


I feel like my childhood is officially dead.

Oh, that's sad. :-( I've only read a couple of his books but I love them.

Oh, how sad. I didn't know he'd passed away. My siblings really enjoyed his Redwall books. He will be missed!

I just read this last night on twitter and I was so heartbroken. I've been reading his books since grade school and I still have them all!
