Podkin One-Ear (Longburrow) Reviews
My 9 year old daughter and I both loved this book. She read it first, for school. She's not big on fantasy (is not a fan of Harry Potter, to my disappointment) but I think her love of animals drew her in, even though these rabbits are essentially humans. It's an entertaining read for the whole family - the scariest parts are broken up with humorous interruptions from the narrator. It's a fun, thrilling story about a rabbit who transforms from a lazy, spoiled kid who doesn't pay attention to his studies into a heroic, courageous and clever leader. We can't wait to read the second book!
I have a 4th grader and sometime it is difficult to get him to read. This was a great book. He truly enjoyed it! I also read it, just so that we can have a mom / son book club. Easy read, some new words. The best part of the book, is that it action packed. The book draws you in right away and at time you will even find it hard to put down. Can't wait for the next book in series!
A wonderful coming of age children's fantasy with plenty of danger and action and funny moments in between. The wriiting was simple, but pleasant, perfect for middle grade readers. Young readers may be a little scared by the antagonists, but I think they may still enjoy it if they read with their family. I also really enjoy the storytelling style of the book, it being a tale told by a cranky bard to a bunch of excitiable bunny children. It really helped lighten the mood after the particularly frightening moments, and really reminded me of Tolkien's storytelling. The storytelling style also helped empasize the "legend" of the main character and how he became a hero to his people. I can't wait to read the continuation of this series!
I can't wait to share this with my students. It's perfect for fantasy lovers, animal lovers, and especially for kids who are not ready for Watership Down.
I loved the book. I dont know how I came across it but once I started, there was no stopping.
What a lovely adventure! just enough suspense for kids (and even adults 😁) to make it a lasting read. Hope to see to follow up soon.
The story opens with the Bard, the Storyteller, a rabbit, crunching through the snow standing upright as people once did long ago. He arrives at a warren on Razorback Downs on Bramblemas Eve and tells the young rabbits a tale of wonder, adventure and truth. He tells them the tale of Podkin One-Ear.
Would give it more stars if I could!
