What to Read After... Mortal Engines 21/01/19
Podkin One Ear
Publisher: Faber and Faber
A mysterious storyteller rolls in from the snow one night and enchants a warren of young rabbits with the tale of Podkin One Ear: the son of a chieftain who went on to become a legend.
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.
Winner of the Blue Peter Book Award 2017 for Best Story.
