Meet Mole, Ratty, Toad and Badger in this timeless adventure that has enchanted generations of children.

This beloved childhood classic by Kenneth Grahame is now available in a stunning gift book edition with dazzling new art.

One spring day, Mole peers out from his underground home to find a marvellous world awaits him. As the seasons pass, he picnics on the riverbank with Ratty, accompanies Toad on a chaotic caravan adventure, and even braves the snowy depths of the fearsome Wild Wood in search of Badger. But when Toad's mischievous ways finally land him in trouble, can his friends come to his rescue and recapture Toad Hall from a gang of sneaky stoats and wheedling weasels?

The hilarious and heart-warming adventures of Mole, Ratty, Badger and Toad are brought to life for a new generation in this enchanting abridgement, accompanied by Kate Hindley's vibrant and appealing artwork.
