This beautiful HarperCollins Children's Classics edition is perfect for every bookshelf.

Mole has had enough of spring-cleaning, thank you very much. He crawls outside his comfortable home, pops into the sunlight and beholds the strangest and newest of things - a river! - and, sitting upon it, a waiting boat.

So begin the timeless adventures of Mole and the companions he meets along the way: jaunty Ratty, naughty Toad and oh-so-mysterious Badger. Together they will get into all sorts of scrambles and scrapes that will take them from the Wild Wood to the Wide World beyond . . .

For more than a century, these endearing woodland animals have charmed readers of all ages with their very human tale of friendship, loyalty and laughter.
