The infamous Toad of Toad Hall seizes on his two friends, Mole and Rat, as companions for an expedition in a gypsy caravan.
The idyllic journey ends in a disastrous road accident – but Toad doesn’t care that the horse has galloped off, that the gypsy caravan lies in ruins, because he has caught sight of the one thing he will love for evermore: that glorious, lovely, exciting machine, the motor car.
Toad is rich enough to indulge his love of powerful cars, but it means nothing but trouble: accidents, hospital visits and endless legal wranglings. It’s Badger who leads their attempt to save Toad from himself, but it means that all four creatures - Mole, Rat, Toad and Badger - find themselves on a difficult, perilous journey in order to try and help Toad escape from jail and return home. And when they do arrive home it is far from over: in their absence Toad Hall has been taken over by creatures from the Wild Wood, and they must find a way to win it back for Toad.
