Why this book?
The winning combination of idyllic countryside and the innocent friendship of the decent animals at the centre of this heart-warming tale lure you easily away from the worries and concerns of the modern world and transport you to this fabled rural landscape. For added enjoyment there are also the comic antics of 'the famous' Toad of Toad Hall. It's a refreshing gin and tonic in book form.
