Fiver could sense danger. Something terrible was going to happen to the warren; he felt sure of it. They had to leave immediately. So begins a long and perilous journey of survival for a small band of rabbits. As the rabbits skirt danger at every turn, we become acquainted with the band, its humorous characters, and its compelling culture, complete with its own folk history and mythos.

Listened to this with my children, who all loved this. It was one I missed reading as a child, so a wonderful experience for us all.

Long ago in London Town, at a time when the muffin man's cries began the day and the lamplighter ushered in the night, two young orphans lived together in the bleak, cold shelter of a public workhouse.

This story has become a Christmas tradition in our home. We have two girls and a boy. At first, my son objected to a story about a doll, but now he is the first to ask to listen to it every year. Beautiful story with a heartwarming ending.

This was an assigned read-aloud for our children's homeschool. Occasionally we use audiobook versions for study because it makes it easier on mom not to have to do all the reading aloud. Our children really enjoyed this story.
