Format: 192 pages, Paperback

This version.Published: January 1, 1993 by Wordsworth Editions

Historical fiction / own

I am a horrible evil classics reviewer. But it was just so boring. I was sadly not in the mood for fun animals beings friends and all of that.

Also my mind went dark. Too early for that considering when it was written but I imagined a atombom wiping out most of the world, and animals got as big as humans and lived their lives apart. But still around.

Far from fading with time, Kenneth Grahame's classic tale of fantasy has attracted a growing audience in each generation. Rat, Mole, Badger, and the preposterous Mr. Toad (with his 'Poop-poop-poop' road hogging new motor-car), have brought delight to many through the years with their odd adventures on and by the river, and at the imposing residence of Toad Hall.

Grahame's book was later dramatised by A.A. Milne, and became a perennial Christmas favourite, as Toad of Toad Hall. It continues to enchant and, above all perhaps, inspire great affection.
