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 (1908) by Kenneth Grahame is a Victorian classic of children's literature, entertaining on a multitude of levels, for the young and old alike, and a commentary on British society of its time.
Here are the exciting and often crazy adventures of animal friends Mole, Ratty, Mr. Badger and of course Mr. Toad and others -- along the river and into the woods, chased up and down the countryside by the police, encountering various unsavory, mysterious, and delightful characters, and ultimately back to Toad Hall where friendship triumphs and a certain boastful Toad learns his lesson.
A charming story for the whole family.
