Staff Reviews


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.

About the Author


Kenneth Grahame was born in Scotland in 1859. He wrote his first stories, published in periodicals, in his early 20s, but his real success came with "The Wind in the Willows." Many believe that Mr. Toad, one of the story's principal characters, is based on Grahame's son, Alistair. Grahame passed away in 1908 without having written a sequel to the much-beloved novel.
