Description: This rare abridged version allows younger readers to enjoy the delightful tale of Mr. Toad and his friends.
Ratty is never more at home than when messing about in a boat – a way of life that appeals to Mole when he first meets him on the river bank. Badger is a less sociable creature, and spends his days deep in the Wild Wood, but Toad is always having adventures. His enthusiasm for motor-cars eventually gets him into trouble, and it takes all his friends' efforts to sort him out!

Val Biro's characteristic colour illustrations – several of which are half-page double-spread – bring this classic tale to life.

Glazed pictorial boards. Small dent on lower edge of front cover; negligible wear on upper edge. Rear cover lightly scratched; minor grubby mark near upper edge. Spine and top corners bumped; lower corners straight. A handful of pages are lightly creased from handling, but are in otherwise excellent condition: unmarked, and completely free from tanning or foxing.

Scarce first edition.

Measures 28.5 cm × 22 cm (11.4″ × 8.8″). Large 4to. Unpaginated.

Price: £10.00
