(From the publisher):
It began, long ago, when Mole abandoned his spring-cleaning and first met Ratty, Badger, Otter, and, of course, the exasperating Toad. Now we find the loyal companions approaching the autumn of their lives, reflecting on their many escapades together, and preparing to hand over to the next generation. But when the future of the River Bank they know and love suddenly comes under threat, all the creatures, young and old, must rally together.
