Description

No sight makes a man tremble more than seeing Mr. Toad behind the wheel of a car...

On a fine summer day, Mole is busy spring cleaning his underground home. When he decides he's had enough of cleaning, Mole ventures towards a place he has never seen before - the river. There he meets Ratty, who takes Mole for a ride in his rowing boat. The two of them become close friends, and spend their time enjoying lazy days by the river. But then they make the mistake of visiting Mr. Toad.

Toad is rich, exuberant, but also reckless. When he purchases his very first automobile, Toad, Ratty and Mole are plunged into a dangerous adventure involving theft, a prison break, and the famous siege of Toad Hall.
Since its first publication in 1908, Kenneth Grahame's story has amused millions of readers, both children and adults. Now with cutting edge visuals and a faithful conversion to a new format, Campfire brings you the definitive version of an all-time classic.



About the Author
Kenneth Grahame was born in 1859. From the age of five, he lived with his grandmother in Cookham Dean, Berkshire, where he spent a lot of time on the banks of the River Thames. It was here that he wrote THE RELUCTANT DRAGON, which was first published in DREAM DAYS in 1898, ten years before the publication of his most famous work, THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS.
