Longburrow: Podkin One-Ear by Kieran Larwood - ADVISABLE

Larwood, Kieran Longburrow: Podkin One-Ear, 244 pages. Clarion Books, 2017. $17. Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG. 

Podkin was living his dream of lounging around the burrow free of worry when tragedy strikes. The Gorm attack his home! With no more than a dagger to defend themselves, Podkin and his siblings, Paz and Pook, try to find shelter from the Gorm´s spies. Soon, they learn the sad truth; no one is who they seem to be. Listen as the bard tells the tale of Podkin One-Ear.

I was not expecting the book with rabbits on the cover to be as gresome as it was. And the violent acts shocked me a little. However, I liked how the characters interacted and how the author was able to smoothly transition from the storyteller to the main story.
