When the Water Rat invites the unassuming Mole to spend his first day ever in a boat on the river, and wise Badger comes along for the ride as well, so begins a marvellous season of adventure for the three friends. Mr Toad (he of Toad Hall) completes a happy foursome, but his tendency to get into hot water leads him into some rather hair-raising scrapes of his own.

From an idyllic riverside picnic to a snowy encounter in the Wild Wood, and from poop-pooping in Toad's shiny new motor car to battling the massed ranks of Stoats, Weasels, and Ferrets in a battle for Toad Hall, there's never a dull moment when they are all together!

In his own inimitable style, Alan Bennett gives voice to each and every character in Kenneth Grahame's beguiling novel. Download and start listening now!

    " While I appreciate the book as a classic, it just isn't my style. I tend to not enjoy excessive description and for whatever reason, the old school British novels are never my favorite. "

    " There really wasn't much that was too special about this novel, but I was curiously drawn to it nonetheless. I fell into the category of the masses who thought this was a mere children's book. I knew of its existence as a novel, but to be honest, my only exposure to the concept was Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. I was pleasantly surprised with Grahame's sophistication of writing and the rich allegorical text he was able to create. I feel like I would have gotten much more out of this novel if I had any familiarity with British history or aristocracy, but even with my limited knowledge I could appreciate the deeply symbolic characters of Rat, Toad, Mole and Badger. Definitely more than a simple children's story. I will never ride Mr. Toad's the same way again. "

    " i can't think of a better bedtime read. well, i probably can, just can't be bothered to right now. still an amazing ability of the writing to put you into a different but believable world. and there really is nothing better than simply messing about in boats. "

    " An endearing story of personified creatures. "
