Outcast of Redwall by Brian Jacques

Outcast of Redwall has as its main caricature a badger, Sunflash the Mace. He is capture when very young by a six clawed ferret. With the help of a Kestrel he makes his escape but not before he paralyses Swartt Sixclaw's paw. Sunflash, with Scarlath the kestrel wages war on all injustice.

Swartt Sixclaw's son was picked up when a baby from a ditch, where he was abandoned when Swartt tried to attack Redwall and suffered a retreat. The baby was bought up by Bryony a young Redwaller. The ferret was banished from Redwall when he was discovered to have poisoned a Redwaller. Bryony rebelling against the decree followed him. With her went her friend Togget.

This is an interesting story that will keep you wondering what will happen next. Sunflash is one of my favorite caricatures.
