3.0 out of 5 stars

on 13 August 2012
This book is a picture book aimed at pre-school & Foundation age children. It simplifies the story hugely - the first chapter, 'The River Bank', for example, is reduced to 34 words and one double-page picture. Consequently, the characters are slightly caricatured - Toad the buffoon, weasels the out-and-out baddies and Badger, Ratty & Mole all terribly sensible.

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.
