Redwall VS. Penhaligon Brush

>> Thursday, August 20, 2009

I recently finished reading "The Daring Adventures of Penhaligon Brush" by S. Jones Rogan. (Long title, I know.) It was a little juvenile in some areas, but overall a great, pleasant read. So I made a list of all the differences and similarities between Penhaligon and Redwall.

DIFFERENCES
.No goats or pigs in Redwall
.If Penhaligon's a country bumpkin, how the HECK did he SUDDENLY know how to sword fight?!
.No other really, really foreign countries in Redwall.
.If Hotchi had fallen off a cliff in Redwall, they would have shrieked his name, not gone "oh, ho hum, how will I ever tell his wife?"
.If it was Redwall, Rowan and Penhaligon would have fallen in total and utter love.
.Redwall's world is Medieval while Penhaligon's is more 1800's.
.If it was Redwall, the villain would have been killed by hero.
.Big good guy army doesn't just suddenly APPEAR in Redwall.

SIMILARITIES
.Book begins with a prologue in form of a letter
.There's a wildcat villain with a wildcat relative who's good. (Tsarmina and Gingivere)
.Mostly same kinds of animals.
.Rowan and Penhaligon have unsure, secretive pasts.
.Ferrets are evil minions to villain and near the end, disrespect their leader.
.Sneaking potion into enemy's food supplies.
.Hay cart pulled by horse. (Cluny)
.Donning guard and monster disguises.
.One word-ALE.
.Healers are mostly foxes. (yeah, I'm proud that I found that one)
.Minor minions aren't that bright in the noggin.
.Hero pretends to be daft to make villain less suspicious.
.They moan about how they don't want their wounds taken care of.

I Am An Otter

You're an otter, mate! Another good friend of Redwall, you are a natural swimmer and a deadly fighter especially with a long bow or javellin. Camp Willow is your home, just as Redwall is your second home. You have a good heart and a strong sense of loyalty. You absolutely love Shrimp and Hotroot soup, living by the motto "Ain't nothing 'otter for an Otter!".
