Set in the idyllic rural landscape of southern England, the adventure tale follows a band of rabbits on their flight from the intrusion of man and the certain destruction of their home. Led by a stouthearted pair of brothers, they journey forth from their native Sandleford Warren through the harrowing trials posed by predators and adversaries, toward a promised land and a more perfect society.
The series uses many words from the Lapine language invented by Richard Adams for the book on which the series is based. "Flay," for example, means "food" and the suffix "rah" is an honorarium meaning prince or leader. The rabbits' folk hero is called "El-ahrairah," which combines the Lapine words for enemy (Elil), thousand (hrair) and prince (rah) and means "Prince Of a thousand enemies." A full glossary of these and other words can be found in the original novel. See more »
Never knew I could get so invested in the lives of bunnies! This was fantastic. Rated it 10 (with having no experience with the book) because I really can't think of what more you'd want in a series. It was beautifully done,; my only complaint being that sometimes it was difficult to tell the characters apart
