This is one of those books that is a delight to own, especialy in hardback with the wonderful illustrations by E.H.Shepherd.
This is almost certainly based on Kenneth Grahame's childhood memories from the mid ninteenth century, and is a collections of tales of a family of four children all growing up together, in rural England.

A delight to own and a delight to read.
