Hi Melody. I named my place Rabbit Hill because of the little fury creatures in spring that I have to watch for when Im mowing. I have always had rabbits. I would never eat one. But as we all know rabbit poop makes great gardens. And rabbits always seem to be so philosophical to me. I always think of Watership Down -- another great rabbit story.

Thanks for the article. I never knew Rabbit Hill was actually a children's book.

I did know it was- I had found it and read it with one of my kids. I was so drawn in by the Rabbits' story.
Thanks for highlighting a true classic.

Thank you all so much! It was such a special book.

I've read Watership Down and I believe it is more of an adult book...and loved it too.

I, too, loved Rabbit Hill. I don't remember how old I was when I first read it. Maybe in my teens or early 20's. I got it from the library, also. Then I read it again maybe 10 or so years ago, and will probably read it again at some point.

I loved Watership Down, also, but it's a much darker story, definitely for adults, and a lot more involved. I also really liked the animated movie that was based on the book. I also loved The Plague Dogs, another by Richard Adams, about 2 dogs who escape from a laboratory.

Another book that comes to mind, written for children, but a little bit dark, was Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH. I was totally fascinated by that story.
