Remember Brian Jacques, RIP.
If you don’t know who Brian Jacques was, he was a genius of a children’s author. His adventure stories filled with anthropomorphic animals (the Redwall Series) lured children back to thick books a full 10 years before the first Harry Potter book came out. His books seem like Robert Louis Stevenson adventures, if Stevenson had written about human-like animals instead of humans. Jacques recently and unexpectedly died.
