This classic of children's literature relates the adventures of a group of animals living in the English countryside. The two main characters are the Mole, a kind, gentle fellow, and Ratty, his resourceful and dependable friend. Mole and Ratty get caught up in the ridiculous misadventures of the conceited braggart, Toad. They help Otter find his lost boy, meeting the demigod Pan in a magical encounter. Throughout their adventures, they rely on Mr. Badger, the wise leader of the Wild Wood and the River Bank. The book's appealing characters, humor, and rich language celebrate the wonders of nature, the changing of the seasons, and, above all, the pleasures and comforts of home.
