Once again a trip down memory lane. Kenneth Grahame paints pictures with his words. Toady and ratty and their friends have mad cap adventures, mostly instigated by Toad who resides in Toad Hall while Ratty lives in his home in the river bank. Toad and Ratty with their friends get up to all sorts of mischief but Toad the leader of their merry frolics only manages to avoid being imprisoned by Ratty and co who go along to keep Toad out of trouble. Full of near escapes, and lots of mischief. Enjoyable from the beginning to the end. The characters may be animals, but adults should read it as well as children. A book for everyone.
