WINNER of the Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Class Animated Program Now a Netflix animated miniseries starring James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, and Oscar and Grammy award-winner Sir Ben Kingsley. A worldwide bestseller for more than forty years, Watership Down is the compelling tale of a band of wild rabbits struggling to hold onto their place in the world—"a classic yarn of discovery and struggle" (The New York Times). Richard Adams's Watership Down is a timeless classic and one of the most beloved novels of all time. Set in the Hampshire Downs in Southern England, an idyllic rural landscape, this stirring tale of "suspense, hot pursuit, and derring-do" (Chicago Tribune) follows a band of rabbits in flight from the incursion of man and the destruction of their home. Led by a stouthearted pair of brothers, they travel forth from their native Sandleford warren through harrowing trials to a mysterious promised land and a more perfect society. "A marvelous story of rebellion, exile, and survival" (Sunday Telegraph) this is an unforgettable literary classic for all ages.

      • bioText: Richard Adams, the son of a country doctor, was born in Newbury in England in 1920. He was educated at Bradfield College and Worcester College, Oxford. He served in the Second World War and in 1948 joined the civil service. In the mid-1960s he completed his first novel, Watership Down, for which he struggled for several years to find a publisher. It was eventually awarded both the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Award for children's fiction for 1972. In 1974 he retired from the civil service and published a series of further books, including Shardik, Tales from Watership Down, Maia, The Plague Dogs, and The Girl in a Swing. Adams died on Christmas Eve, 2016.

      • content: jo13 - Watership Down Hazel, the lead rabbit that blazed the trails ahead of the other rabbits he was with, looked around the new place that was to be their warren now. The rabbits had finished their adventures coming here from the old warren and now they started to dig burrows in the soft, sandy bank next to a creek and green grass. While the rabbits were digging their new homes a stranger rabbit was seen coming towards them. He said his name was Cowslip and he was there to help the traveler rabbits. He told them that the way they were digging the burrows was not right because the wind would blow through it. Cowslip invited them to come to his warren and live and then he ran back to his burrow because it was starting to rain and he didn’t like to get wet. Hazel and the other rabbits talked about if they should go or not because the other warren might try to kill them. They eventually decided that they should go and they trudged off in the direction that Cowslip had gone. When they got to the new warren they looked around and liked it, but they still felt cautious about these rabbits. Should they stay here or not? Hazel must make the decision soon. Thats in chapter 5
