The classic story that introduced generations of readers to Mr. Toad, Mole, Ratty and Badger has a new gift edition, with cloth covers and incredible artwork. Watercolor and digital illustrations run throughout the book; some in full color, some in single color, all are just breathtaking: Mr. Toad goes on a wild ride (see what I did there?), eyes and mouth open wide behind the wheel of a car; Mole and Rat pass a lovely time in a rowboat, late afternoon sun shining on the water; a maid helps Toad into a disguise, bathed in shades of blue. Green endpapers place readers at the riverbank with vines and swirls of water. Glossy pages and a vintage-looking clothbound cover with foil and embossing give this book a truly classic look and feel. A beautiful gift, and a nice add to your classics bookshelves.
