The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame (My Goodreads Review)

The Wind in the Willows

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mole, Ratty and Badger are the exasperated yet devoted friends of Toad. Friends that are far more worthy than reckless Toad deserves. Yet, we can't help feeling sorry for the poor, spoilt, big headed and extremely foolish Toad. He means well but is a fool. One five minute wonder after another leaves Badger shaking his head constantly in disbelief.

When Toad's reckless pursuits lead him into trouble with the law he falls from his high society perch and sinks to an all time low. Only his devoted and often complaining friends can help him. And so, with great aplomb, Mole, Ratty and Badger come to Toad's aid in his hour of need.

An absolute peach of a story.
