Over a century later, and it's still great. Any age can pick this up or have it read to them. A light and poignant look at friendships and human values. It also delves into the (almost) mystical with this edition including the often excluded chapter "The piper at the gates of dawn".
From the feverishly poetic longings of Ratty, the introspective Mole, the conceited pomp of Toad or antisocial Badger with a heart of gold; this story can also serve as a study in the human condition, but largely deals with what it means to have adventure and friends to share them with.
