The Wind in the Willows

The Wind in the Willows

By  Kenneth Graham, Kenneth Grahame

Hailed as one of the most enduringly popular works of the twentieth century, The Wind in the Willows is a classic of magical fancy and enchanting wit. Penned in lyrical prose, the adventures and misadventures of the book's intrepid quartet of heroes-Mole, Water Rat, Badger, and, of course, the incorrigible Toad-raise fantasy to the level of myth.
Reflecting the freshness of childhood wonder, the story still offers adults endless sophistication, substance, and depth. The animals' world embodies the author's wry, whimsical, and unfailingly inventive imagination. It is a world that succeeding generations of both adult and young readers have found irresistible. But why say more? To use the words of the estimable Mr. Toad himself: "Travel, change, interest, excitement!. . . Come inside."
