What to expect
This is a classic fantasy story about four animals who behave like humans. They talk, philosophize, and emphasize friendship but also keep their animal habits. They are Mole, Rat, Toad, and Badger.
There are some adult books read by children and some children’s books read by adults. However, this one appeals to both because it stresses a main theme of doing your best at all times, forgiving others, and setting a goal to make the world a better place.
It is based in an English countryside with wonderful descriptions that make you feel as though you’re there with them. It has a wonderful read-and-listen-aloud feeling with good humor and imagination. We invite you to join us.
