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.

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 audience to Mole, Ratty, Badger and, of course, Mr Toad.

About the Author

Tom Moorhouse

Tom Moorhouse lives in Oxford, where he enjoys the refreshing and perpetual rain. When not writing fiction he works as an ecologist at Oxford University's Zoology Department. Over the years he has met quite a lot of wildlife. Most of it tried to bite him. He loves hiking up mountains, walking through woods, climbing on rocks and generally being weather-beaten outdoors. Pouring words into books makes Tom very happy. His novels include The Rising, River Singers, and Trickster.

Tom talks in greater detail about The River Singers (this is an extended version of the video on the book page.)
