This classic is a fun read. Mole, Water Rat, Toad and Otter become friends and have many adventures together - mainly because of Toad being so troublesome and spontaneous. The 12 chapters are: The River Bank The Open Road The Wild Wood Mr. Badger Dulce Domum Mr. Toad The Piper at the Gates of Dawn Toad's Adventures Wayfarers All The Further Adventures of Toad "Like Summer Tempests came his Tears" The Return of Ulysses The edition I read has 20 beautiful full colour illustrations in it.

Absolutely charming. I loved the way the different animals were drawn to illustrate different aspects of the human character. Toad is such a wonderful mixture of the overblown and yet innocently charming that he has become a favourite for me.

A "children's book" that any adult can enjoy. A wonderful mix of friendship and adventure. The characters warm your heart and the tales capture your imagination.
