“A captivating story with sword-bearing rabbits, daring quests, and moments of poignant beauty, The Green Ember is a tale that will delight and inspire young readers to courage and creativity and would make a perfect book for a family to read aloud.” – Sarah Clarkson
"I bought this book and read it to my 6 and 9 year old kids purely on the concept of “rabbits with swords”. Mum and the kids enjoyed listening to Dad read the book, as the mysteries unfolded. The rabbits demonstrate bravery in battle, and model how to deal with loss, and with sulking and unhappiness. The book shows rabbits who have tremendous resilience, and care for each other as they hope for a better day." – Dave Phillips
