Artist's Description

Illustration based on Watership Down:

“Hazel–dear old Hazel–it’s simply that I know there’s something unnatural and evil twisted all round this place. I don’t know what it is, so no wonder I can’t talk about it. I keep getting near it, though. You know how you poke your nose against wire netting and push it up against an apple tree, but you still can’t bite the bark because of the wire. I’m close to this–whatever it is–but I can’t grip it. If I sit here alone, I may grip it yet.”

“Fiver, why not do as I say? Have a meal on those roots and then go underground and sleep. You’ll feel all the better for it.“

“I tell you I’ll have nothing to do with the place,” said Fiver. “As for going underground, I’d rather go back over the heather. The roof of that hall is made of bones.”

“No, no–tree roots. But, after all, you were underground last night.”

“I wasn’t,” said Fiver.

“What? Where were you then?”

“Here.”

“All night?”

“Yes. A yew tree gives good shelter, you know.”
