The Lovereading4Kids comment
Everyone loves the ebullient and outrageous Mr Toad, one of the heroes of Kenneth Grahame’s classic The Wind in the Willows. Tom Moorhouse brings him to life in this modern retelling which captures all the drama of Mr Toad’s famous and deadly dangerous antics when he gets behind the wheel as well as his wonderful friendships with Mole, Ratty and Badger. David Roberts illustrations are warm and funny and bring the rich social life of the river bank vividly to life.
The Adventures of Mr Toad by Tom Moorhouse
With stunning illustrations from David Roberts, and a sparkling new text from Tom Moorhouse, this is a glorious picture-book edition of The Wind in the Willows. Kenneth Grahame's children's classic has all the ingredients you need to make a perfect picture book - great characters, humour, lots of adventure, and a heartwarming message about the true value of friendship. This is the perfect book to introduce a really young auidence to Mole, Ratty, Badger and, of course, Mr Toad.
A stunningly reimagined modern makeover for Mole, Ratty, Badger and Toad. The Bookseller
