The Wind in the Willows is one of the most-read children’s books in England (and many other countries). Both the uniqueness of its characters and Grahame’s mastery of storytelling will enchant you. Unfortunately, I could not read the book as quickly as I wanted, but I can say that it made me smile every time I read it. You will read about friendship, loyalty, forgiveness, adventure, mystery, and more, as well as the sweet moral lessons elaborated in the book. Mole, Mouse, Toad and Badger will be your friends from now on, and every time you take the book in your hands, you will be teleported to that beautiful river.

The Wind in the Willows

Far from fading with time, Kenneth Grahame’s classic tale of fantasy has attracted a growing audience in each generation. Rat, Mole, Badger and the preposterous Mr Toad (with his ‘Poop-poop-poop’ road-hogging new motor-car), have brought delight to many through the years with their odd adventures on and by the river, and at the imposing residence of Toad Hall. Grahame’s book was later dramatised by A. A. Milne, and became a perennial Christmas favourite, as Toad of Toad Hall. It continues to enchant and, above all perhaps, inspire great affection.
