Includes character guide, quiz, author info, springtime activities, and glossary

"Ho! ho! I am the Toad, the motor-car snatcher, the prison-breaker, the Toad who always escapes!"

Tired of spring cleaning, Mole ventures above ground into the warm sunshine, and happens upon his friend Ratty. Together they picnic on the sparkling, burbling river, brave the sinister Wild Wood in wintertime to visit the bad-tempered Badger, and take to the open road in a caravan with dear, silly old Toad. But when Toad's attention turns to motor cars, his reckless behavior goes from bad to worse. Badger, Rat, and Mole must save their friend from ruin, and Toad Hall from the clutches of the rascally Stoats and Weasels.

About the Author:

Kenneth Grahame (1859–1932) is most famous for his classic of children's literature, The Wind in the Willows.

Review:

"People think of it as a children's book, but that's not all it is. What seared my imagination was its surrealism. The rat, the mole and badger could talk, but they could also change size: a badger could crawl down a rat hole, a toad could drive a car. At nine or 10 that fascinated me and that made a deep impression on my career."  —Terry Pratchett
