Jasmine from Year 7, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

Toad, Ratty, Mole and Badger are four little friends with
different personalities who live near the river and go on
adventures with each other. Toad is jailed for stealing a car
and when he escapes he finds that his home has been taken over
by stoats and weasels and the others had to help him get it
back.

What I liked about this book is that it is funny, advventurous
and had great characters. My favourite character was Mole, I
liked him because he's funny, friendly and kind. What
Idisliked is that the book went on a bit and there is too much
description in some places.

I would recommend this book because it is interesting, funny
and unique.

Matthew from Year 7, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

It is a story about two animals called Mole and Ratty who go to
visit their friend, Toad. Toad's uncontrolled behaviour goes
from bad to worse and Mole and Ratty are forced to visit the
heart of the terrifying Wild Wood, where they find the
reclusive Badger. Together, the three friends must recover Toad
and Toad Hall from the clutches of the stoats and weasels.

What I liked about the book is that Mole and Ratty will go to
extreme lengths to save Toad. Also, my favourite character is
Badger because he doesn't like the company of others but then
goes to help his friends. My favourite part of the book is when
mole, Ratty and Toad go caravanning and the car comes crashing
down the road and knocks down the caravan. I would recomend
this book because it is a fun and enjoyable book with lots of
exciting twists.

Elliemay from Year 7, The Laurel Academy, Mexborough:

How can I start! I found this book absoulty excllent. I
couldn`t put the book down!! I honestly couldn`t stop reading.
The story is about a shy mole who befriends a water rat who
teaches him how to use a boat. He also meets a badger and an
Incorrigible toad. Who`s latest craze is motor cars.
Its a great classical book to read. I would recomend this book
to anyone who loves reading like me!!!!!!!!!!

Elisha from Year 8, Ridgewood School:

I enjoyed this book very much and found it jolly, exciting and
funny. On the other hand i did find it abit to childish and
prefer my books to be morer mature, but i would deffinately
reccomend it to children of a younger age.

Tom from Year 6, St Peter's Catholic Primary School:

I remember this book from when I was very young. I used to
listen to it on an audio-book every night when I was 4,5 and 6.
It's a heart-warming story that never gets old. It's great!
