Staff Reviews


This is an old favourite from my childhood. A group of rabbits’ home is endangered and they must travel to find a new burrow where they can set up their warren. Circumventing superstition, a powerful overlord, and the hand of Man, the rabbits come through much adversity to attain their goal. Powerful, humane, harsh, wonderful, this book will stay with you long afterwards.

— From Krys

Description


Watership Down is the compelling tale of a group of wild rabbits struggling to hold onto their place in the world--soon to be a BBC and Netflix animated miniseries starring James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, and Oscar and Grammy award-winning Sir Ben Kingsley.

A phenomenal worldwide bestseller for more than forty years, Richard Adams's Watership Down is a timeless classic and one of the most beloved novels of all time. Set in England's Downs, a once idyllic rural landscape, this stirring tale of adventure, courage and survival follows a band of very special creatures on their flight from the intrusion of man and the certain destruction of their home. Led by a stouthearted pair of brothers, they journey forth from their native Sandleford Warren through the harrowing trials posed by predators and adversaries, to a mysterious promised land and a more perfect society.
