Hello, I thought this might be interesing. This year when I was vacationing in Poland I found Redwall at a book store. The title "Bitwa O Redwall" Actually means Battle For Redwall, instead of just plain Redwall... well anyway, here is a pic:

Funny, in the UK version, it's more...purple. Crazy foreign book covers. Got any more?

Well unless you want to see the inside...not really. Its completely different than the American version, the variation in color may have to do with my scanner.....*grins*

I think this was the first translated version, I haven't read to much due to the fact that it's harder for me to read in Polish and I don't have alot of time with school and whatnot....

Looks cool with red. Reading books in foreign languages is fun. It also makes good revision if you are taking an exam in the language, I find. It's interesting they use the same picture for the cover.

Pretty good cover for the book. What I wonder about the non-English books is if character's names are printed as is, or if the equivalent name (if there is one) for the language is used instead.

Yeah the names do change, Mattias for instance is Macej i think, but as far as i could see the "i am that is" sort of didn't work all the way..... but i could be wrong....

Cool. I like the red, too. I've always wanted to read a book in another language. Anyone know if Redwall has been published in Spanish?
