Winner of the Best Story Blue Peter Book Award 2017

A thick white blanket covers the wide slopes of the band of hills known as the Razorback Downs . . .

Podkin is the son of a warrior chieftain. He knows that one day it will be up to him to lead his warren and guard it in times of danger. But for now, he's quite happy to laze around annoying his older sister Paz, and playing with his baby brother Pook. Then Podkin's home is brutally attacked, and the young rabbits are forced to flee. The terrifying Gorm are on the rampage, and no one and nowhere is safe. With danger all around them, Podkin must protect his family, uncover his destiny, and attempt to defeat the most horrifying enemy rabbitkind has ever known.

Review:

This is one of the best books I have ever read and, believe me, I have read a lot! (Cally Evans, age 10 Lovereading4kids)

Like The Lord of the Rings and Watership Down mixed together, this magical adventure pulled me in from the very first page and I just couldn t put it down. (Sam Harper, age 11 Lovereading4kids)

This was probably the best book I have ever read. (Mariyya Khan, age 9 Lovereading4kids)

Sublime, Splendid, Superb! It s an adventure that keeps you wanting to read on and on into the night. It was a joy to read and absolutely world class. (Alex Bateman, age 10 Lovereading4kids)

Podkin One Ear is a great book for people who like adventure books and love to be surprised. Overall I would rate this book a 5 stars because it had a lot of action and always kept me thinking. (Dylan de Los Santos, age 12 Lovereading4kids)

It s a captivating story . . . it s a book that can push your imagination beyond your boundaries. (Bella Perez, age 11 Lovereading4kids)

An unusual adventure story which I loved. (Isabel, age 9 Lovereading4kids)

My little brother now asks me every night for me to tell him about The Legend of Podkin One-Ear and I think it will be a story that we will both remember when we have grown up. (Summer, age 10 Lovereading4kids)

In the immortal words of Buffy's rabbit-hating demon Anya: "Bunnies aren't just cute like everybody supposes/They've got those hoppy legs and twitchy little noses." We suspect she'd be seriously creeped out by the hopping-mad bad guys in this children's book, who are metal-infused, murderous, mind-controlled bastards assimilating everything in their path. All of which comes as a bit of a shock to little Podkin, who must leave his warren with sister Paz and baby brother Pook when the nasty Gorm attack, killing any bunny in their path. With the Gorm after Podkin's magical dagger, our furry heroes must fight not only for their lives but to save their world.

The good news is that despite the bloodthirsty villains, this is actually a surprisingly adorable kiddie tale that will leave sprogs considerably less scarred than Watership Down. It's also beautifully illustrated. However, it does feel rather slight, with some background characters in serious need of fleshing out (particularly the acrobatic dwarf bunnies named Mish and Mash). As an introduction to a post-apocalyptic rabbit world, though, it's jolly good fun; although this particular story is pleasingly self-contained, expect sequels to breed like... well, rabbits.

--(SFX)

Parents desperate to share Tolkien with their children will enjoy the first instalment of what promises to be a rather epic rabbit saga. Illustrated by legendary fantasy artist David Wyatt, this beautiful book has 'Christmas gift' written all over it.

Its form of a story within a story gives the whole thing a very traditional feel, but the characters, pacey action and world-building have timeless appeal. A family read that will entertain everyone:Podkin One Ear already feels like a classic.

--(BookTrust)

An original fantasy with warrior rabbits, fierce foes, sibling loyalty, riveting adventure, and genuine storytelling. --(Kirkus)
