This was a great start to this series. I loved the introduction to the Guard, the personalities of the Guard members we are introduced to, and the art is gorgeous! The plot immediately pulls you in as you travel with these brave mice on their missions. I finished this in one sitting because I wanted to know what was going to happen to the brave members of the Guard.
I think fans of Redwall will enjoy this series. The first book is not as detailed as Redwall is, but it is a similar world. This might be a fun way to see if a younger audience would be interested in a story like Redwall. That does not mean Mouse Guard is just for a younger audience, quite the contrary. I enjoyed this book, and look forward to reading the rest of the series.
