Mistress Badger, Mrs. Mole, Miss Ratty, and Lady Toad. This beloved 1908 children's classic receives a gentle feminine-voiced makeover and doesn't miss a beat. The superb cast of A-list English actresses led by Cush Jumbo (THE GOOD FIGHT) are completely comfortable with the author's original plush prose and elegant descriptions. And the dialogue sounds like a soothing tea-time conversation. When the lovingly boisterous Lady Toad, played to the hilt by comedian Jennifer Saunders, finds her home overrun by militant weasels, wild gypsies, and, of course, singing mice, her old rodent and amphibian friends come to the rescue. Why shouldn't these classic characters be women? With original music and on-location sound effects, this friendly, timeless tale will leave children of all ages completely captivated.
