A phenomenal worldwide bestseller for more than forty years, Richard Adams's "Watership Down" is a timeless classic and one of the most beloved novels of all time. Set in England's Downs, a once idyllic rural landscape, this stirring tale of adventure, courage and survival follows a band of very special creatures 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, to a mysterious promised land and a more perfect society.

To capture the feeling of the verdant English landscape in Richard Adams's "Watership Down" (Atheneum, 496 pages, $29.99), first published in 1972, Aldo Galli painted in the real locations described in the story. In his finely wrought illustrations, the rabbits Hazel and Pipkin crouch beside the real Nuthanger Farm and Hazel, Bigwig and Fiver make their way across the real Hampshire downs. Mr. Galli brings a sense of intensified realism to his depictions in this 40th anniversary edition. Foliage is luxuriantly, impossibly green, and the edges of things--the feathers of birds, the fluff of dandelions--look as sharp as if they were cut from glass. As a gift, this edition would suit anyone over the age of 10, including adults.

Notă biografică

Richard Adams (May 9, 1920-December 24, 2016), an English veteran of World War II, originally told the story of Watership Down to his two daughters, who insisted he publish it as a book. It became an instant classic, selling over a million copies in both the United Kingdom and the United States, winning both the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize in 1972. His other books include Shardik, Maia, Tales from Watership Down, The Girl in a Swing, and The Plague Dogs. James Sturm's graphic novels include Off Season, The Golem's Mighty Swing, and Market Day; he co-authored the popular instructional series for children Adventures in Cartooning with Andrew Arnold and Alexis Frederick-Frost. Winner of two Eisner Awards, Sturm co-founded the Seattle alternative weekly The Stranger and The Center for Cartoon Studies, where he currently serves as director.

Joe Sutphin is an illustrator of books for kids such as Helen Taylor's Little Pilgrim's Progress, Andrew Peterson's Wingfeather Saga, and the New York Times bestseller Word of Mouse by James Patterson. His love of nature, and of the living creatures in the fields and woods around his home, has informed his art for much of his life. Joe lives in a barn in Ohio with his wife, Gina, and a bunch of cats.
