Teejay (which stands for Toad Junior), Mo and Ratty are exploring the ruined grounds of Toad Hall. After falling into a tunnel they discover something . . . someone in the ice house. It turns out to be Mr Toad and the children have found him in the nick of time: Wildwood Industrious (the shady operation run by the descendants of the Stoats and Weasels) is on the brink claiming legal ownership of Toad Hall. With outrageous antics from Mr Toad, action-packed adventure from the start, and stylish two-colour illustrations from Holly Swain that capture all the comedy, this is a fantastic package for young readers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A Race for Toad Hall pays gentle homage to Grahame's original, while creating a rip-roaring ride for the digital generation" * Liverpool Echo *
"Mr Toad is as gloriously eccentric as you would expect him to be and the new young characters are smart, brave and adventurous." * YLG North West *
"One of the reasons the story works so well, is because of Mr Toad's response to the modern world" * Books for Keeps *
"S series revisiting a much loved character, bringing him up to date. He is as bombastic as ever" * Primary Times *
"It has beautiful illustrations and the story moves at a cracking pace" * School Zone *
"A sparkling standalone read filled with Holly Swain's jump-off-the-page, green-toned drawings. We're glad Mr Toad lives on" * The Yorkshire Post *

“'poop poop' ”

Loved this book. Took me right back to my childhood. Mr Toad and his rivalry with the pesky weasels. All children should love this book.
