    Chris BancellsJacques, B 2004 The ribbajack other curious yarns New York Puffin Books Short StoryPrintSelection tools consulted School Library Journal, WorldCat, Review Best known for his Redwall series, Brian Jacques turns his prolific pen to a darker set of stories in this volume Six stories wander over the course of a couple centuries, and what appears to be much of the Irish countryside The Ribbajack , clearly the best of the bunch, takes place at a British boarding school in 1937 The malevo [...]

    Book Talk This collection of short stories may be by the author of Redwall, but if you re looking for cuddly animals you re looking in the wrong place These stories mostly revolve around school aged human youth and the creatures that do appear in the stories are anything but cuddly If you want to find out what a Ribbajack is and what it can do, then pick up this book I d wait until day light to read it, though.Rocks my Socks These stories are wonderfully atmospheric and perfectly capture the hor [...]

    Not as good as his Redwall books, but definatly worth the time if you like fun stories with a scary twist.

    This is a good compilation of short stories and really spooky Each story keeps you wondering what will happen next

    I haven t read a Jacques book since I finished the Redwall series And, when you read a bunch of different stuff for over a year, you kinda start to forget certain things about certain authors that you really love And that s kinda what happened to me I had forgotten just how great of an author he was Of course, I knew that Redwall was one of my favorite series and that Jacques is a great writer But every author has a different style From Tolkien to Rowling to Meyer, every single author has a diff [...]

    The late Brian Jacques, Liverpool author of the Redwall series begun in 1986, and ending with the posthumous release of The Rogue Crew in March pf 2011 , should have received the world wide acclaim that J.K Rowling justly received for the Harry Potter novels two decades later Jacques powerful sense of narrative, his richly developed characters, and his unerring ability to judge where to draw the line between keeping a children s story childlike, yet intelligent enough both to educate the child f [...]

    Fate is fickle, and the company of unwilling friends short lived The Ribbajack and Other Curious Yarns, P 97 Brian Jacques has a nearly exquisite feel for the terrain of various Scottish dialectic tones, and it paints all of his novels with a unique brush Mostly known for bringing this flair to the famed Redwall series, he has now taken his unique writing style to the telling of six scary stories for young readers actually, this is his second such collection I get the feeling that these tales wo [...]

    I may be jumping the gun on this one, as I have one last short story to read, but based on the first five stories alone, I can say that I enjoy the late Mr Jacques s YA horror stories As popular as his Redwall books are, I m a bit ashamed to admit that this is the first of his books I ve picked up, and that the only reason I bought it is that our library was selling it for 0.50 the day I went to hear Rick Yancey speak about his then upcoming Monstrumologist sequel a couple Octobers ago I decided [...]

    The Ribbajack is a short story that follows the swashbuckling theme that Brian Jacques uses in almost all his books The story has the feel of a folk tale and teaches a moral at the end of the story I have always been a fan of Brian Jacques stories and this one did not disappoint me It was a little different in its character development due to the brief nature of the story.The tale is of a boy who is as bad as can be The whole school is afraid of him and he dabbles in the dark arts When someone f [...]

    I am a life long, die hard Redwall fan, but this was pretty bad If I find a book in the horror section, I better be sleeping with the lights on that night This wasn t even creepy, let alone scary Any one of the Redwall books is creepier than this book The only mildly promising story was The Ribbajack Had that story been added to and turned into a 167 pages there might have been something The only other story I didn t completely struggle through was Rosie s Pet , and it was cute, not scary.

    By the author of the Redwall series, these were a lot of fun to read Though I didn t think they were as good as the Redwall books, I did enjoy reading this collection of stories that were not about Jacques signature animal characters If you want something to read on a quiet evening, then this book of scary stories is for you My favorite was the Medusa tale, but I think Jacques put just as much thought into these yarns as he did in his Redwall collection Fans of his work will notice some similari [...]

    What a delicious romp through the imagination Jacques never disappoints in this collection of short stories From the titular The Ribbajack to the charming Miggy Mags and the Malabar Sailor , I was enchanted and delighted While a few of the stories are creepy A Smile and a Wave comes to mind , all are lovely reads to enjoy on a cold, winter s night and they all contain laugh out loud bits of humor.

    When young Archibald Smifft takes up an obsession of witchcraft and his superiors try to reform him, his imagination creates a horrific monster to take revenge on his archenemy, the Reverend Miller, and disappear with all those who try to stop him, but his evil mind is foiled by his own monster Comes with five other strange tales that will intrigue even the most exceedingly droll hearts Olivia

    The Ribbajack other Haunting Yarns is a book of short stories I gave it a three because some of the short stories, I felt were lacking But The short stories Ribbajack, Miggy Mags and the Malabar Sailor, and Rosie s Pet were all very good stories This is a great book if you have extra time on your hands and need a funny or interesting yarn to tide you over.

    This book is a bunch of short stories put together I really enjoyed reading this book alote stories where stories of monsters and ghost and stuff to sort of shake you up alttle to leave you wondering IF you like not knowing whats comming up in a storie and haveing that great suspense then read The Ribbajack other curious yarns By, Brian Jacques.

    These stories were interesting Just interesting I don t know if I find them amusing or what, but I know they were interesting.The stories aren t really horrific or scary, not even frightening at the least.Overall, the book was fun while it lasted, not exactly worth the full price to me, but.

    a fantastic collection of seven short stories based on mythical creatures and light horror A delightful breath of fresh air With several well established casts of mixed and well accented characters what bring each story to life.

    I liked 2 out of 6 or 7 stories The first and the second one were the only good ones, the rest weren t good at all I wouldn t recommend these because, I think the other ones weren t as good, and you should ve focused on the second one too.

    A mostly lighthearted romp of 6 stories Jacques sticks mainly to myths and legends for propagation The real highlight is his authentic and entertaining Liverpool dialogue and accents, notably on Miggy Mags and the Malabar Sailor RIP my friend.

    I really enjoyed this short horror story collection for kids Especially the Smile and Wave and even the Mystery of Huma D Este I originally borrowed this from the library to read with the kids I tutor, but I found myself reading it in my own spare time for the sheer thrill and enjoyment.

    I loved this book A big part because it is not a typical fluffy fairy tale book, even though it is comprised of short fantastical stories, and the endings are mostly positive I imagine I will read this to my kids quite often as they grow.

    Ok, so I only read the first story, The Ribbajack, which I enjoyed Then I got two pages into the second story and lost interest What can I say I had other books I wanted to read, lol

    Mostly variations on familiar spookies werewolves, ghosts, mermaids, etc The Ribbajack is original, and as a story has a bit dash to it and the characters a bit life.

    LOVED it I have been wanting to read this book for a long time and it made me remember what a good author he was I really miss his work.

    I honestly only really liked The Ribbajack the rest were just so so They didn t sparkle like the Ribbajack but maybe that s just me

    These are the kind of stories i m not used to hearing from Brian Jacques but they were wonderful, inventive and interesting I highly recommend this.
