Richard Adams & Mary Anne

Today, Love All Books wishes the happiest of birthdays to my sister, Mary Anne, and to Guardian Award winning author Richard Adams.

Richard Adams is the author of Watership Down.

Now a book about sentient rabbits might sound a bit too out there for some folks, but I'd highly recommend this book to everyone. I have fond memories of reading this book, and look forward to the day I share it with Riley (my six year old).

I also have fond memories of going to the DMV very shortly after the state I lived in went to seven character personalized license plates and trying to get HRUDUDU—the Lapine word for a car or tractor—for my car.

When I said "I hope it is available", the woman behind the counter looked at me as if I was from Mars and said "Of course it is going to be available! We've only been doing seven characters for a few days, and who else would want that?"

As displeased I was that she was wrong, I did love the look on her face when she saw that that combination was taken!
