The Wind In the Willows

Rat and Mole are close friends who live in the tranquil countryside. They spend most of their time together, and their paths frequently cross with Badger, who is more reclusive and very wise. The three of them are deeply concerned about their friend, Mr. Toad, who is extremely wealthy and impetuous. He lives at Toad Hall, a sprawling estate, but it has fallen into disrepair because of his irresponsible behavior. His fixation on various forms of fast transportation is particularly disturbing to the friends. When he lands himself in a sticky predicament, they strive to get him out of it.
