Friendship, hospitality and having fun propel the adventures of these four animals as they go about their lives against the watery landscape in this classic tale. Life on the riverbank with close-friends Mole, Rat, Toad and Badger is mostly peaceful. There is lots of entertaining as well as a great deal of just messing about on the river. Just occasionally the peace is shattered, as when Toad gets behind the wheel of his car and speeds around the countryside letting rip with the horn or, more seriously, by brief attempts to defeat the weasels and stoats in the Wild Wood.
A beautiful gift edition of Kenneth Grahame's timeless classic, enchantingly illustrated and told in its complete and unabridged form. Join Mole, Ratty, Badger and Mr. Toad in their adventures and antics, from venturing into the dark and dangerous Wild Wood to simply messing about in boats.
With a padded cover, stylish design and a ribbon marker, this will make a gift to be treasured and shared together again and again.
'Complete and unabridged, this new edition has beautiful watercolour illustrations throughout, making it ideal for reading to children or to help develop reading on their own' - Baby and Me magazine'
