The book was first published in 1908 and centers around the animal citizens of an English riverbank. It begins with Mole leaving his spring cleaning and wandering down to the river where he meets Water Rat who takes him for his first boat ride, Mole asks to take over the rowing but Rat refuses him so he grabs the oars and accidentally capsizes the boat. Mole apologizes so Rat teaches him how to row and then takes him home for supper, his gracious actions set the tone for the rest of the novel. If you haven't already, would you be interested in reading this book?
