High RhulainIn a surprising turn of events, Penguin's online catalogue has posted David Wyatt's art for the UK cover of High Rhulain. While it used to be commonplace in the early days of The Newsline, this marks the first time a UK cover has hit the 'net prior to the US version since The Taggerung (back in 2001).

In addition, the catalogue had a new description (although it doesn't reveal anything new), which reads as follows:

A fantastic, brand new title in the bestselling, award-winning Redwall saga.

High Rhulain follows Tiria Wildlough, a young otter maid touched by the paw of Destiny, on an epic adventure from the safety of Redwall Abbey, across the wild Western Sea to the mysterious Green Isle.

Brian Jacques gives all Redwall and fantasy fans more of what they crave in this story of danger, courage and friendship.

High Rhulain has a US shelf-date of September 8th, 2005 (ISBN# 0399242082). A UK release will follow in October (ISBN# 0141381604). The reported page-count is 416 pages.
