About the Book

From the winner of the Blue Peter Best Story Book Award, the third instalment of Podkin's epic battle against the Gorm.

The bard looks up at the three figures. They have black hooded cloaks and long robes. From the holes in their masks, three pairs of eyes watch him: cold, calm, emotionless.‘Yes,’ says the bard. ‘They’re bonedancers. You don’t need to sound quite so excited, though. They have come to kill me.’

And so it is that the bard and and his young apprentice Rue are taken to Spinestone, the temple warren of the bonedancers. It is here that the bard is ordered to retell the tale that has got him in so much trouble . . . and so to the next instalment in the astonishing tale of Podkin One-Ear . . .

Podkin, Paz and Pook once again find their home under threat, but this time they are ready to fight! Podkin and the others leave for Sparrowfast to ask their uncle for the use of his magic bow. It's the one weapon that could save them all. But as they flee into the forest depths, it seems they have been betrayed . . .

'It's jolly good fun . . . expect sequels to breed like . . . well, rabbits.' SFX on The Legend of Podkin One-Ear

‘Kieran Larwood’s talent and his passion for his wonderful characters leap off every page.’ David Long, author of Survivors

'One of the best books I have ever read.' Cally Evans, age 10, Lovereading4kids

  • Kieran Larwood

    Kieran Larwood has loved fantasy stories since reading The Hobbit. He worked as a teacher and has just about recovered. He now writes full-time although, if anybody was watching, they might think he just daydreams a lot.

“Just finished Beasts of G. Loved it so much. Superb. Adored the Blodcrun crown stuff. Properly excellent. Can’t wait for number 4.”
- Max Porter, author of Grief is the Thing with Feathers
