There might be a bunny on the cover, but don’t be fooled — the tale of Watership Down is one of strife, perseverance, courage, integrity, friendship, and vision. It was a gamble to publish, with one publisher writing afterward:
“Certainly it was a mad risk for a one-man publishing firm working on a shoestring to accept a book as bizarre by an unknown writer which had been turned down by the major London publishers, but it was also dazzlingly brave and intuitive.”
Since then, it’s gone on to be treasured by multiple generations, enjoying several decades of unprecedented acclaim. And all the characters are bunnies. What more could you ask from a book that you ought to read in your lifetime?
