The musical is an always lively, often hilarious adaptation with wisdom enough for all. Peterson's music and lyrics add to the charm of the classic story, enhancing an old favorite. The wealthy, spoiled and wildly enthusiastic Mr. Toad of Toad Hall takes up a new hobby—motorcars—and terrorizes the once-peaceful English countryside along the Thames. His friends, Rat, Badger and Mole, try to talk sense to him without success. As a last resort, they lock him in his bedroom. He escapes and "borrows" a motorcar without asking—then the big trouble starts!
