When shy Mole climbs out of his hole and into the fresh spring air, he meets Ratty. The two set off for a day on the river, and thus begins this classic tale of deep friendship and adventure.
Even before the publication of the first edition in 1908, Kenneth Grahame's beloved characters appeared in gentle letters from the author to his young son. Those letters and the charming story itself inspired internationally acclaimed artist Michael Foreman to create the luminous illustrations for this unabridged edition.
Perfect for gift giving, this exquisite volume features several reproductions of Grahame's letters, along with photographs of father and son, a note about the author, an illustrator's note, and a sewn-in ribbon bookmark.
