Earlier today I was in the middle of some cooking, and I happened to switch on the radio. It was some kind of drama. After a few moments, I recognised it as a dramatisation of Watership Down – one of the best adventure stories I have ever read. And certainly the best ever featuring rabbits!
I really enjoyed it, and decided to go and dig out my old copy, which looks like this:
Still, I had a feeling something was wrong. As I wandered around the house, I wondered what it was. And finally it came to me. Watership Down…children’s books…oh dear, I had forgotten to write my GirlsHeartBooks post.
Oops! (As Chloe of Chloe’s Secret Princess Club would say.)
With many apologies for being a bit late, here is my post, and the message of it is – if you haven’t read Watership Down then definitely do so! Or you might want to listen to the same radio dramatisation that I was listening to today. The link is here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b081tpw0
Enjoy. Watership Down is a classic. And in a way, I’m even glad I forgot to write my original post so I could tell you to go and read this excellent rabbit adventure instead!
