Throwback Thursday: Watership Down

watership downIt’s Throwback Thursday again! Today Librarian Sandra recommends: Watership Down by Richard Adams.

In a constant struggle against oppression, a group of rabbits search for peaceful co-existence. Chronicles the adventures of a group of rabbits searching for a safe place to establish a new warren where they can live in peace.

A winner of the Carnegie Medal and published in 1972, this tale centered around rabbits is not as lighthearted as it might seem from the cover. This book is recommended for those in grades 6 and above. This book is another classic that was adapted into a movie (in 1978)!
