Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When shy Mole climbs out of his hole and into the fresh spring air, he meets Ratty. The two set off for a day on the river, and thus begins this classic tale of deep friendship and adventure.

Even before the publication of the first edition in 1908, Kenneth Grahame's beloved characters appeared in gentle letters from the author to his young son. Those letters and the charming story itself inspired internationally acclaimed artist Michael Foreman to create the luminous illustrations for this unabridged edition.

Perfect for gift giving, this exquisite volume features several reproductions of Grahame's letters, along with photographs of father and son, a note about the author, an illustrator's note, and a sewn-in ribbon bookmark.

Synopsis:

Michael Foreman lavishly illustrates this unabridged edition of a childhood classic.

About the Author

KENNETH GRAHAME (1859-1932) grew up in the village of Cookham Dene in Berkshire, England, which is the setting for much of his masterpiece The Wind in the Willows, originally published in 1908. While pursuing his career in finance at the Bank of England, he wrote poems, essays, and novels.
MICHAEL FOREMAN is one of the world's leading illustrators of children's books and the winner of several major awards, including the Kate Greenaway Medal. His work ranges from picture books to fairy tales and original children's fiction. He is the illustrator of many Harcourt books, including Michael Foreman's Mother Goose, Joan of Arc, and Arthur, High King of Britain. He divides his time between London and St. Ives, England, his childhood home.
