Average rating

5 out 5

Winner of the Best Story Blue Peter Book Award 2017 A thick white blanket covers the wide slopes of the band of hills some call the Razorback Downs... Podkin One-Ear is a legend: a fearsome warrior rabbit whose reputation for cunning and triumph in battle has travelled the ages.


A lovely fantasy/adventure story. I can see why this book is popular with year 4 teachers as a class reader. There's just enough intrigue and suspense to keep readers hanging on for the next installment. Podkin is an obvious favourite character. However, Paz with her quick thinking and strength is my favourite character. I've seen lots of people recommend this book for year 4 but I think the number of characters and changing settings makes it more suitable for an older more confident reader if it is being read independently. Great for a class reader for year 4 though - lots to discuss.
