The beloved tale of the friendship between the animals that dwell along the riverbank: good-hearted Rat, shy and curious Mole, sensible Badger and more! The friends must find a way to deal with the self-important Mr. Toad, a wily and impulsive character given to sudden crazes that cause trouble for all involved. The friends must save Toad from himself and rescue the magnificent Toad Hall from devious weasels, ferrets and stoats. Kenneth Grahame's beloved story has been set to a charming score by Douglas Post, sure to delight audiences of all ages.
