Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Grahame, published in 1908...

Rat and Mole are admiring Toad's new motorcar in front of Toad Hall, Toad's manor house.

This was in my grandfather's childhood book collection, my dad read it to us when we were children...

P.S. Although Toad's car in the version we had was an old-fashioned black car - this one is really spiffed up!

The <3 symbol is "internet language" for a heart/love

....that's a rat? Ears ain't big enough... looks like a squirrel to me! Maybe whoever did the picture doesn't know the difference? LOL

I love Wind in the Willows! Both the book and the Disney cartoon got soooo much use at my house when I was young!

WiW is great, but that car is brilliant.

Oh and <3 means "less than 3".
