This exciting fantasy adventure tale tells the story of Podkin, the lazy rabbit son of the chieftain of Munbury Warren. When evil creatures called Gorm invade Podkin's home, he, his older sister Paz, and little brother Pook are able to escape. They take and protect a magical dagger the Gorm are seeking. Beautiful, descriptive language brings the rabbits' many adventures to life as they flee to safety. With the help of his sister and brother, as well as friends made on his journey, Podkin gains confidence to become a brave chieftain. This is storytelling at its best!

— Barbara Katz

"An original fantasy with warrior rabbits, fierce foes, sibling loyalty, riveting adventure, and genuine storytelling." --Kirkus

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, they must seek refuge and collect allies if they are to fight back and rid the land of the evil Gorm scourge.
