Read in January, 1968

A gift from my parents when I was old enough to enjoy it on my own, though I remember finding the abduction of the otter child strange ("The Piper at the Gates of Dawn") and wasn't crazy about some of Toad's adventures, which seemed to me at the time to be an interruption of the main story: apparently I preferred the furry characters.

Beautiful line drawings and colorplates.

Lucie and I read some/most/all? of this together, which pleased our cat, Finnie. Drawn by the sound of our voices, he would settle in with us on the bed and seem to listen.

There was also an excerpt--that amazing picnic lunch!--in one of my textbooks (not sure what grade I would have been in).
