Random House issued this statement regarding Tribes:
The brave creatures who defend Redwall Abbey from the threat of evil hail from many different tribes throughout Mossflower and beyond. The Tribes of Redwall is an exciting new series that takes a closer look at these tribes and at their place in Redwall legend. There will be profiles of the main characters along with a quiz and a magnificent fold out poster. Badgers is the first in the series.
