Review

Leaving his spring-cleaning behind him, timid Mole ventures beyond the familiar comfort of his burrow and makes a new friend in Ratty, who lives by the riverbank. Together they spend long summer days enjoying the delights of the river; but when they meet the reckless Mr Toad, they find themselves caught up in a series of strange adventures in order to help Toad out of trouble, and return him to the safety of Toad Hall.

In this sumptuous new gift edition, award-winning illustrator David Roberts puts his own distinctive spin on a much-loved classic. Roberts' atmospheric, richly-coloured illustrations perfectly capture the timeless, wistful feel of Kenneth Graeme's text, and his animal characters are appealingly quirky and eccentric. A beautiful new edition of a favourite book to read together and to treasure.
