Read from January 16 to February 06, 2012 — I own a copy

I know this is a lot of people's favourite children's book and I really want to love it too but I just don't. I've read a lot of children's novels and for me there are others that are better.

I find the story just too jumpy. It doesn't flow well, with random stories being dropped into it. The one that comes to mind quickest is the tale about the missing child. That's just weird, has no connection to the rest of the book and is actually a little disturbing.

I quite like the characters of rat, mole and especially badger and I like the imagery of the river and felt really drawn into setting but the story just has never fully engaged me.

Swati I couldn't agree more!

I think Enid Blyton's works were a thousand times more fantastic than this!
