I have had this book since its publication (1980) and have never read it. I think it's probably time to do so!

Oh how absolutely delightful!! Though I wanted to ring Mr. Toad's neck on numerous occasions, this was the perfect read after that last book I never finished.

I am glad, though, I didn't read it until now. Since it was in early 1900's British vernacular, I know that as a young person I would have been confused by some of the words. My PBS/Masterpiece Theatre addition has served me well. And the funny thing - re-watching "Downton Abbey" and Lady/Dowager Violet saying that Edith isn't Mr. Toad!
