I think I have a cold of some sort. I have been sneezing so badly today that it gave me a sore throat and a raw nose. It made reading difficult. I ended up reading about 100 pages then turning on the tv and napping. Ugh. It's the weird weather around here. Anyway, this is just like all other Redwall books in creating such vivid scenery. Like you can picture it down to the color of the flowers in the meadows.
My one-eared radar kitty Fluffers helps me read. She's not so good at pronouning words but she is great at holding pages.
