APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Sure to keep everyone engaged during a family road trip, Watership Down is set in a world of rabbits, but the camaraderie of Richard Adams’ furry heroes feels brilliantly human. When the young runt Fiver has a premonition that his warren is about to be destroyed, he and his fearless brother Hazel lead a heroic band of rabbits on a dangerous quest to a new home. Though the journey is scary, it’s a glorious tale of bravery and resilience. Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi’s charming Scottish burr perfectly captures the story’s thrilling adventures, and also its warm sense of decency.
