We may know the story of Mole, Rat, Badger, and Mr. Toad, but treat yourself to listening to the full original. Simon’s perfect accent puts you right on the riverbank at the edge of the Wild Wood: “Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing — absolutely nothing — half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” Listen to a sound clip of Simon’s narration of Kenneth Grahame’s classic, and read AudioFile’s full review.
