Description

A Puffin book - stories that last a lifetime.

Soon to be a major TV mini-series!

An epic story that has been beloved for generations, Watership Down has become one of the most famous animal stories ever written.

Fiver, a young rabbit, is very worried. He senses something terrible is about to happen to the warren. His brother Hazel knows that his sixth sense is never wrong. So, there is nothing else for it.

They must leave immediately.

And so begins a long and perilous journey of a small band of rabbits in search of a safe home. Fiver's vision finally leads them to Watership Down, but here they face their most difficult challenge of all . . .
