“Rat, Mole, Badger, and Toad. Toad was a bad guy, always doing naughty things. He bought a 'motor-car' and got in trouble for speeding and wrecking it. He then stole another motor-car and got in trouble for that, he got arrested and went to jail. He was helped by the jailer's daughter and escaped, crashed another motor-car, and finally ended up back at Badger's house. They helped him get Toad Hill back and then he finally changed his ways and gave credit to Mole, Rat, and Badger.”Stephanie wrote this review Sunday, February 12, 2012.

“Cute, little critters that cheer "Hooray" and are concerned with English propriety.
Great children's escapist book. Memorable characters, innocent situations, fantastic imagery, and easy to digest adventures and morals. I highly recommend it to anyone.”

“This classic of children’s literature tells the adventures of four good friends – Mole, Rat, Badger and Toad – living on the edge of The Wild Wood. Toad is the most vexing animal! He’s boastful and given to hyperbole; on the other hand, he’s generous with his friends and sincerely remorseful – eventually. Fortunately for him, his friends compensate for his shortcomings. Rat is ever resourceful and a font of information. Badger is the wise old man of the wild wood – somewhat of a recluse, but gracious and eager to help when called up. And then we have the ever curious Mole who starts out the adventure and proves to be steadfast, reliable and intelligent.
Mary Woods does a great job performing the audio book. I can see why it’s remained popular with children for over 100 years. Somehow I never read it as a child (or have no memory of it). My adult self wasn’t all that impressed, however, so it gets a respectable but not enthusiastic 3 stars.
