Follow the journey of some very special rabbits in this gorgeous gift storybook edition of the new TV mini series of Watership Down.

First published in 1972, this classic animal story has been made into an animated television mini series by the BBC and Netflix. Beautifully re-imagined by script-writer Tom Bidwell (My Mad Fat Diary) as a four-part animated television event, and featuring stunning and evocative CG animation, this retelling of the classic story is perfect for a family audience. This beautiful gift picture storybook, with a text adapted from the TV scripts by award winning author Frank Cottrell-Boyce, is illustrated with full colour drawings and images from the TV animation.

Set in the English countryside, Watership Down tells the tale of a ragtag band of rabbits fleeing the destruction of their warren in search of safety and a new home. Their adventure is brought to life in this stunning gift picture storybook, which will be treasured by fans of the original novel, as well as new readers introduced to this epic tale by the television mini series.
