about this book

Tales From Watership Down is the enchanting sequel to Richard Adams’s bestselling Watership Down, the enduring classic of contemporary literature that introduced millions of readers to a vivid and distinctive world. Here, he returns to the delightful characters we know and love—including Fiver, Hazel, Bigwig, Dandelion, and the legendary rabbit hero El-ahrairah—and presents new heroes as they struggle to survive the cruelties of nature and the shortsighted selfishness of humankind. These whimsical tales include all-new adventures and traditional stories of rabbit mythology, charming us once again with imagination, heart, and wonder. A spellbinding book of courage and survival, Tales From Watership Down is an exciting invitation to come home to a beloved world.
