Woah.  That's the first I hear of it.

I assume it's a collection of short stories?

I think another name for the book is the Unbroken Web since that is the introduction story. It does have nice paintings and illustrations.

Hadn't heard of that, either. For a moment was thinking, 'seriously, he wrote a story about wolves and I hadn't heard about it or read it already??' But I see that it's a collection of stories.

Sometimes I don't find short stories too engaging; depends how short it is :D

Yeah, to be honest I've only read three of his books.

Going from a story with cute bunnies (which by the way was the first thing he wrote), to wolves!
Someday I will have to read more novels by our favorite author.  :frith :campion
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)
