Isla from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:
Podkin One Ear is a GREAT book for children my age and above, the story is an adventure - fantasy with lots of interesting characters, my favourite being "Crom". Crom is an amazing fighter and can defend himself well, even though he is blind! "Mish" and "Mash" are a great duo, they are twins who are dwarf rabbits and great gymnasts because this used to be their hobby, travelling around entertaining people with their amazing skills till they got captured....... The ending which I wont reveal has a very good twist that you don't see coming and I was expecting a total different outcome. I decided to give this book a 10 out of 10 as I love twist at the end and the storyline is amazing. The picture, writing ratio is good, with the pictures showing good graphics. I never wanted to put this book down, I wanted to keep reading. There is the sequel out now to Podkin One Ear and I cant wait to see where the adventure takes me!
Poppy from Year 5:
Podkin one ear was a fantastic adventure to go on and read, which I will never forget how great it was, neither will you. This story was brought along by a traveller who told young rabbits the legend of Podkin one ear.The three musketeers [Podkin, Pook and Paz] try to defeat the terrible, selfish Gorm, who is an evil, iron character. They try to defeat the Gorm because their father got killed which isn’t fair for them. On the way they meet other GREAT characters who come to help. The ending was strange because you don’t know what is coming and has a slight wobble and made me feel emotional. Even though this book was good, the starting didn’t give me a great impression until I got in to the story. This book is great for ages over 9 or 10s because some of the language is difficult even for me. This book is definitely a 10/10 because it was very imaginative and has given me great ideas for being a writer.
Aidan from Year 4, Rosedale Primary School:

Cara from Year 4:
Podkin is a young, lazy rabbit who should have been preparing to take over as chieftain from his dad. But does he care? No. He avoids his lessons and responsibilities, preferring to nap all the time. When the monstrous Gorm tear his burrow apart, his life suddenly changes. Podkin, his older sister Paz and Pook, his younger brother have to flee their home. Can he become the warrior his family needs him to be? Is there anywhere safe from the terrible Gorm? When I first saw this book, I thought it was aimed at younger children because the main character is a rabbit. However it is not, it is set in a future where humans no longer exist and rabbits have evolved to be human-like. It is a story within a story as Podkin's tale is told by a storyteller and some chapters are about him. Despite this, it is fast paced and I couldn't put it down as I was desperate to see what happened next. The author used such great description that I easily imagined Podkin and the storyteller's world. The characters were believable and it was interesting to see them develop as their adventure progressed. For example, Podkin's challenge to become less self-centred and be a better rabbit. I liked all the characters, but my favourite character was Paz. She thought that everything shouldn't be just about men and she felt she had a lot more to offer than do chores and get married. I would recommend this book to everyone, it is awesome!
Hannah from Year 7, - Home Educated -:
Podkin one ear is defiantly i good book about the adventures of a rabbit (podkin) and is brother and sister I wouldn't say its one of my favourite books but its good. my age rating would be 7 to 10 and this book has a nice twist at the end.
kenan from Year 6, Montagu School, Mexborough:
I really enjoyed this book my favourite part is when podkin want to fight the Gorms but all he has is a sword that cuts through anything except steal I thing this book is very funny but sad because podkin loses his parents all he has is his older sister and his little brother Paz
