I will read this to the children I hope to some day have; such delight with such wisdom is rare to find.
But this above-ground world has its dangers and vexations too; the Wild Wood is a mysterious place with strange and frightening inhabitants, and the puffed-up and foolish but good-hearted Toad causes endless worry to his friends with his constant infatuations. When he claps eyes on a motor car it is love at first sight. In the grip of this latest obsession, the Toad is a menace to himself and everyone else. Just when Toad is busy congratulating himself on being such a clever toad for escaping from the law, he is faced with a terrible threat from the Wild Wooders. This time his friends Mole, Water Rat and Mr. Badger must band together to help rescue Toad from the mess he his landed himself in.
This classic book is timeless in its appeal to readers both young and old. Anyone opening its pages can hardly fail to enjoy busking in the beauty of its writing and loosing themselves in its perfectly evoked mood of golden childhood days spent blissfully out in nature with close companions. Adventure abounds too, and the scrapes that Mole’s innocence and Toad’s foolishness cause will leave readers unable to put this book down. A delightful and absorbing read.
How could anyone not like Toad, Badger, Mole, and Ratty? Whimsical, funny, and interesting. I first read this at age 6 but had had an introduction to it earlier from having it read to me earlier than age five. I loved it then. " Babar," " Winnie the Pooh," " Make Way for Ducklings," and " Nancy and Plum," are just a few of my favorite childrens' books. I think it is healthy for children to be introduced to any and all literature from another time or another country. How about " Alice in Wonderland?"
Does anyone remember the record that used to accompany the " Babar" series?
