Podkin One-Ear (Longburrow) (Paperback)
Middle-earth for middle graders! This young reader fantasy series proves you don't have to be brave or powerful to do great things.
In a classic fantasy world of anthropomorphic rabbits, three young siblings are on the run from the villainous Gorm tribe who have killed and enslaved their clan. Podkin, once destined to be clan leader, has always been spoiled, but now he must act bravely as he, his older sister, and baby brother flee for their lives.
Facing pursuit and treachery, the three collect allies in their search for refuge, until at last they are ready to fight back against the Gorm and attempt to rid the land of an evil scourge.
For young fans of Redwall, Warriors, and other classic animal fantasy favorites.
