Are you a fan of Erin Hunter's Warriors  Series or the swashbuckling adventures of Redwall Abbey ? If so, you owe it to yourself to check out Watership Down  by Richard Adams, one of the greatest animal fantasy novels of all time.
A band of brave rabbits sets out from their doomed warren on an epic journey across a dangerous land. Along the way, they must face weasels, birds of prey, cats, men, and hostile bands of other rabbits. Filled with nail-biting escapes, brave heroes and terrifying villains, Watership Down will keep you up way past your bedtime. It's one of those rare, "stand alone" fantasy novels, but the characters searching for a new home in this story will stay with you for years to come. Recommended for grades 5 and up.
