There’s a world outside and I want to see it!”

Mole has been stuck inside for far too long. Finally escaping their underground home, they team up with good friends Ratty, Badger and the loveably roguish Toad on an adventure to blow away the quarantine cobwebs. Mole and the gang must go head-to-head with a motor-car, Her Majesty’s Constabulary and a legion of Weasels, Ferrets and Stoats taking up residence in Toad Hall. Can our plucky band of heroes save the day?

“fun, funny and utterly charming”
