The Wind in the Willows (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
The Wind in the Willows is a children's novel by Kenneth Grahame, first published in 1908. Alternately slow-moving and fast-paced, it focuses on four anthropomorphised animals in a pastoral version of Edwardian England. The novel is notable for its mixture of mysticism, adventure, morality and camaraderie, and celebrated for its evocation of the nature of the Thames Valley.
