Brian Jacques- 15 June 1939 to 5 February 2011
Your wonderful stories will live on but we shall miss additions to your universe.
You inspired us to read.
You kept us entertained on long travels.
Your lavish descriptions of food made my children want to eat turnips.
Your creative genius will be missed.


  1. oh no! i used to devour his books. he was such a wonderful storyteller!

  2. I am sorry to say I have not read Brian Jacques. Sorry to hear you lost your long time friend...debbie

  3. Kirsten and Debbie- I bet your children and grandchildren would love to be read some of his works. We have a few of audio books that we have listened to in the car on long trips- they are something everyone can enjoy. And my daughter informs me that someone has posted the entire animated series online and they were watching it last night.
    Hmm, maybe this weekend in his honor we'll have to have some "turnip and tater and beetroot deeper than ever pie".


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
