A comedy classic. This hilarious woodland romp with Mr Toad, Mole and Ratty is just what I need to cheer me up on a rainy day. What a fantastic book. A must-read

so engaging, brought tears to my eyes near the ending. It just one of those books that you can never put down. It has a great moral behind the novel and gave me many opportunities to further myself as a individual. My most recommended book for me in my opinion. 5Stars 100%

can't wait for the next one!!

Turns out the Zebra did it
OK I haven't read the whole of this per se. Who does that anyway?!? (Aside: one of my old teachers used to get naughty kids to copy from the dictionary as punishment). But this is my default dictionary on my kindle so it deserves to be added to my shelves because it is actually quite useful when you need to look up the odd word or phrase.

Excellent Book. Oxford's galactic lexicon seems to know no bounds. Whenever I'd pick it up to read, I felt like there was always something new in there.
Brilliant stuff. Absolutely brilliant.
