Booklist - 07/01/2018 In this sequel to Podkin One-Ear (2017), the enigmatic rabbit bard leaves Thornwood Warren along with a companion, a curious young rabbit who longs to become an apprentice storyteller. During their journey, the old rabbit continues the tale of Podkin and his quest to find the magical objects needed to defeat the evil Gorm. Like the mysterious bard, Larwood shines as a storyteller, providing an intriguing group of heroes with different strengths and vividly describing their experiences on a journey full of danger, suspense, and swashbuckling action. At intervals, double-page black-and-white pictures illustrate their adventures and intensify the drama inherent in the Longburrow series. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
