Teejay (which stands for Toad Junior), Mo and Ratty are fishing on the riverbank when their peace is disturbed by Toad's out of control river cruiser. Toad is obsessed with following some rather dubious treasure-hunt clues but who is setting the clues and why are they so keen to keep Toad away from Toad Hall? As the shady operations of the stoats and weasels continues, it's up to Toad's loyal friends to guide him out of troubled waters and keep his dignity intact!
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.

'What Tom has done is to keep the fun, the characters, the silliness and the light - but cast it all in a modern frame that really works. What I hope is that this is not a one-off ... the characters - young toad, mole and vole - the matriarchal badger - the evil empire of weasels and stoats - are all too good to be left with just the one outing ... more please!' * Amazon *
'Top-notch storytelling from Moorhouse and appealing, contemporary illustrations from Swain in a limited (toad) green palette.' * The Bookseller *
