Chapter 6 - Mr Toad


Please listen to Chapter 6  via Torrisholme TV 






Mr Badger presents himself at the River Bank and announces the hour has come to take Toad in hand. The three friends march to Toad Hall...but discover an unrepentent Toad is unwilling to give up his love of fast cars.

Consequently the friends imprison Toad in his own home until such time as he sees sense...but the cunning Toad finds a way to escape by exploiting the good nature of his captors.

Toad is enjoying himself at the local inn when a car pulls up outside. 'As if in a dream' Toad finds himself first seated in the driver's seat...then speeding recklessly along the open road. But Toad is caught and finds himself 'a helpless prisoner in the remotest dungeon of the best-guarded keep of the stoutest castle' in England.
