This is better than most of the Mr. Toad's because it is longer.

ISBN 0394948181 - Mr. Toad loves to go fast - in his gypsy cart. Even in that, he runs up huge bills because he crashes into things and has to pay for them. While his friends lock him up and plot to try to keep him from losing Toad Hall to debts, Toad sneaks out and trades Toad Hall for a motorcar! When he's arrested for stealing it, everyone pitches in to help him out, even Cyril, his horse.

For the nitpickers who like to be sure that their kids' books send the "right" messages, this one won't do it for you. Cyril breaks Toad out of jail and there are no consequences and Toad doesn't change his ways... but if you're just interested in entertaining the kids and getting them hooked on books, Toad's a good way to go! His adventures are funny, he's happy-go-lucky and, in the end, Toad is Toad.

The illustrations are standard Disney, bright and colorful, and compliment the text wonderfully. And, of course, the movie these characters come from, The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, is a nice way to draw kids into this book and build up to the book they both came from, The Wind in the Willows. Get 'em reading!
