The illustrations are pretty enough, without being particularly captivating and the story is exciting enough for the book to appeal to most 3-6 year olds. However, if you're looking to this book to inspire a love of Kenneth Grahame's classic in a child, this edition doesn't really cut it; indeed, it is just as likely to put off a child from reading the original when they are older by giving away the plot, while failing to give away the magic, of the original.
Definitely a good purchase and I recommend it.
I bought this version of the story as a birthday gift for a neice and was quite disappointed with it. There wasn't any sense of adventure and moral learning or any background to the relationships. It was basically just a greedy toad wanted a fast car, stole a fast car and ended up in jail. His friends wondered where toad was and discovered his house was taken over by weasels. Toad escapes jail and his friends help him get his home back.
It's a very bland and empty version of the story, which, to me, doesn't even convey any moral message.
