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.

“Utterly captivating.” —People

“A return to the rabbit world so memorably conjured by Richard Adams in Watership Down. . . . Affectionate, compelling, and oddly convincing.” —Seattle Post-Intelligencer

“An exercise in enchantment. . . . Adams is a master of characterization and description—and his rabbit vocabulary is priceless. . . . Tales From Watership Down is the sort of work that can transport the reader to a parallel existence.” —The Baltimore Sun

“It’s grand to see Mr. Adams’s characters again.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Lyrically written. . . . This will be a sure hit with all those who have loved the first book.” —Booklist
