“Don’t you know?” grinned Rat. “Oh, Mole! There is nothing half so much fun as simply messing about in boats!”
A world of wonders awaits Mole as he emerges from his little underground home one spring day. He discovers the sights and delights of the river aboard Rat’s rowing boat. He ventures into the Wild Wood, home to kindly Badger. In the company of fun-loving Toad, he feels the thrill of the open road.
But Mole soon learns that where there is Toad, there is trouble. Toad has a dangerous new hobby, and Mole and his friends must use all their wits and courage to keep him from disaster!

This stunning anniversary picture book, adapted by bestselling author Timothy Knapman, introduces their famous adventures to readers aged 4+, with timeless illustrations from E. H. Shepard, the artist who created the world-famous images of Winnie-the-Pooh.
