About this deal

There's a map in the front of the book but only a very small portion is actually adventured in. Which is not so bad but the idea of having a map is to add atmosphere and to help the reader physically follow the protagonist through their journey. But having only a small portion of the map explored makes it difficult to perceive the protags anguish and difficulties. It also means that such a small section isn't named specifically. So all I really know it that walked around this forest patch for ages. Most of my favourite children’s books feature animals with human traits ‘Watership Down’ ‘Mrs Frisby and the rats of NIMH’. For more stories of animals fighting evil see Brian Jacques’s Redwall series or Robin Jarvis’s equally thrilling Deptford Mice books.

It feels like the protagonists come out on top maybe a little bit too easy in the end. Everything leading up to it is set up quite well though, so it all does make sense. Dit verhaal houdt ergens het midden tussen Watershipdown en Lord of The Rings, en dan voor kinderen van een jaar of 10. Een avontuurlijk, fantasierijk verhaal vol humor, warmte en verlies. Dit boek heb ik blind uit de bibliotheek meegenomen voor mijn dochter. Een gokje. Maar ze vond het geweldig. Zo geweldig dat ik het van haar absoluut moest lezen. En dat heb ik dus gedaan.Following on from the first book, Podkin and Paz are now hiding in Dark Hollow warren, deep in the forest of Grimheart. The Gorm have spread even further, and they must undertake a deadly mission into the heart of their territory to find a magical weapon that might give them an edge in the coming battle. Bila je večer uoči Kupinova kada se jedan bard zaustavio potražiti sklonište u zečinjaku Trnjak, zauzvrat za priču. A priča koju je započeo pričati započela je također na večer uoči Kupinova, kada je blagdansku idilu jednog drugog zečinjaka prekinuo napad zlih Gvozdenih, uslijed kojeg je troje malih zečića moralo pobjeći kako bi sačuvalo živu glavu. Jedan od tih zečića bio je upravo legendarni Podkin. When the bard is suggesting some stories to the children, he mentions the tales of Beobunny and The Fisher Rabbit. What do you think they might have been about? Could you write your own version?

Jedina sitnica (sitnica ovisno o tome koliki ste Grammar Nazi i kojoj ste verziji pravopisa više priklonjeni) koja me mrvicu živcirala čitajući je razdvajanje riječi neću i ubacivanje bespotrebnih slova u neke riječi, poput j u pogrešku. No, ako je Podkin mogao zanemariti strah u bijegu od Gvozdenih i sukobu s tim zastrašujućim bićima, mogla sam i ja zažmiriti na poneki razmak. :) Svašta bi se dalo pomisliti o malenom Podkinu koji jednostavno – na veliku frustraciju njegovih roditelja, sestre i učitelja - uživa u izbjegavanju svih lekcija koje bi mu, kao sinu plemenskog poglavice, mogle itekako biti od koristi.The first book in the series follows the adventures of Podkin, his sister Paz and their baby brother Pook.
