Teejay, Mo, and Ratty really shouldn't be exploring the overgrown grounds of Toad Hall - but that's never stopped them before. This time, though, they fall into a tunnel. Undaunted by tales that the Hall is haunted, they find something . . . someone . . . in the ice house. It's none other than Mr Toad, and he's been there for a hundred years . . .
