Product description

Puffin Classics: the definitive collection of timeless stories, for every child.

We all have to meet our match sometime or other.

Featuring a brand new foreword from Madeline Miller, author of The Song of Achilles, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this beloved classic of children’s literature.

When Fiver, a young rabbit, has a vision of something terrible happening to his warren, he knows he has to act. Together with his brother Hazel, they leave immediately and lead a small band of rabbits on a search for a new home. The long and perilous journey eventually takes them to Watership Down, but here they face their most difficult challenge of all…

Watership Down began as a story for Richard Adams’ daughters and became one of the most epic, famous and loved animal stories of all time.

’...a treacherous journey and quest for survival – one to pick up, time and time again’ The Guardian
