The Lovereading4Kids comment
Stunning and compulsive are two words that best describe the story of Fiver, of Hazel and the rabbit warren full of family and friends. Rejected by most publishers before eventually being snapped up by Rex Collings in 1972, it was an instant hit and has since sold millions of copies the world over. Beautifully written with some of the best characterisation you'll come across in children’s literature, it tells the story of a group of rabbits and their will to survive despite human attempts to do otherwise. Full of adventure, humour, excitement and sadness it will enthral as much now as it did when it was first published.
The Good Book Guide Review. This best-selling novel tells the story of a band of rabbits who leave their warren because one of their number, the telepathic Hazel, senses danger - and journey hazardously across the Berkshire downs in search of safety. Despite its length and complexity, people of all ages become absorbed and obsessed by it.
Watership Down by Richard Adams
Fiver could sense danger - something terrible was going to happen to the warren. His brother Hazel could sense it too. They had to leave the warren, and they had to persuade the other rabbits to join them. And so a band of rabbits begin a long and perrilous journey.
