TOAD’S OBSESSION WITH CARS
As soon as Ratty, Mole and Toad return from their disastrous caravanning adventure, relieved to be back safe at HOME,
Toad purchases a brand new motor car with plans to drive across the countryside, the only way to ROAM.
Dressed in driving gloves, goggles, cap and stylish OVERCOAT,
Toad comes swaggering down the steps expecting his friends to GLOAT.
However as he slides into the driver’s seat of his latest shiny motor car, giving them a royal wave, zooming off in a cloud of DUST,
Ratty and Moley shrug their shoulders, looking grim and worried as they walk off in DISGUST.
Zooming across the countryside,Toad is not known for his sensible behaviour, so very soon his crazy driving is causing much STRIFE,
Hearing his powerful machine approaching, horn blasting, wheels spinning, Toad singing, each wary creature races away fearful for its LIFE!
Of course Toad is a reckless motor enthusiast driving far too fast, regularly crashing into hedges or landing in DITCHES,
Luckily walking away from his mangled vehicles each time with just a few cuts, bruises and minor gashes requiring STITCHES. WIND IN THE WILLOWS Poem on AWESOME art of my dear talented friend Laurence @laurence_treglia 🙏🏼💛🎨
