Shy Mole, who dreams of an exciting new life by the endless River. Ratty, a friendly, unflappable, altogether civilized chap. Gruff Badger, who hates absolutely Everyone; except all his friends. And Toad. Oh, Toad! Glorious, crazy, doomed Toad: Toad the pampered braggart, Toad the desperate thief, Toad the haunted fugitive and the hero of his own silly dreams. From buzzing summer days to winter’s killing cold, from gentle picnics to deeds of might and daring… Everyone should have a life like this; and friends like these.
