Best family series I’ve seen in a long time.

Our entire family loved this series (kids 7, 9, 11) and it inspired my 11 yo to read the novel of the same name (it’s now one of his all time favorite books). Great storytelling...rabbits battling for survival so possibly upsetting to little kids. Otherwise, completely appropriate, safe and very enjoyable story for the whole family! A rare treat! I’d watch it again.
