So together Hazel and Fiver and a few other brave rabbits secretly leave behind the safety and strictures of the warren and hop tentatively out into a vast and strange world.

The Plague Dogs
Kartoniert, 416 Seiten, nur in englischer Sprache erhältlich, 16,00 EUR

Two dogs, Snitter and Rowf, escape from a research laboratory in the Lake District where it is wrongly supposed they have been purposely infected with a deadly virus and now pose a dangerous threat to the human population. As the authorities give chase, the two friends make their way through the hills and across the moors, along the way learning to survive on their wits and finding friendship and help from a fox they encounter. They dream of finding their original owners and a safe haven - but the hunt is on. A lyrical and engrossing tale, The Plague Dogs is a remarkable journey into the hearts and minds of two canine heroes.
Another wonderful classic from the author of "Watership Down", a cross between "The Blade Runner" and "The Incredible Journey". Richard Adams's classic adventure story about two dogs who escape from an experimental research lab in the lake district; a topical allegory which addresses the issue of animal rights.
