The Wind in the Willows (Mass Market Paperback)
Ah, the legendary exploits of Mole, Rat, Badger, and Toad! While intended for children, Grahame's classic is essential reading for even high-minded existentialists, with meditations on nature, individuality, friendship, responsibility, courage, and addiction. This edition features Ernest H Shepard's expert illustrations that perfectly capture the charm and complexity of this great book.— Jon
Shy Mole, who dreams of an exciting new life by the endless River. Ratty, a friendly, unflappable, altogether civilized chap. Gruff Badger, who hates absolutely Everyone--except all his friend. And Toad. Ohh, Toad--glorious, crazy, doomed Toad: Toad the pampered braggart, Toad the desperate thief, Toad the haunted fugitive and the hero of his own silly dreams.
From buzzing summer days to winter's killing cold, from gentle picnics to deeds of might and daring, from wild escapes to meeting with a god...
Everyone should have a life like this--
And friends like these.
