I"m fourteen and I love anthropomorphic books. My favorite book is Watership Down. I love Warriors and Redwall. The poppy series was good, and Varjack Paw was good too. However, Swordbird pales in comparison, although it has been compared to Watership. I thought the characters in Swordbird were shallow and unrealistic. the Characters in Redwall and Warriors are more real and have more depth. The book was mindless fluff and I didn’t connect with the Characters and I didn’t care about them at all. The battles were not bloody or realistic like Redwall, and the bird who died had a horrendously sappy death scene. This book was awful, terrible, and cheesy. It felt like a Redwall knock-off.

Swordbird is the best book I’ve ever read. Good theme, excellent story structure, full of humor suspense and fun. That’s why many many kids and expert in children’s literature like it...[edited for publication]
