Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Wind in the Willows (1908) is a book for those "who keep the spirit of you alive in them; of life, sunshine, running water, woddlands, dusty roads, winter firesides." So wrote Kenneth Grahame of his timeless tale of Toad, Mole, Badger, and Rat in their beautiful and benevolently ordered world. But it is also a world under siege, threatened by dark and unnamed forces — "the Terror of the Wild Wood" with its "wicked little faces" and "glances of malice and hatred" — and defended by the mysterious Piper at the Gates of Dawn.

The Wind in the Willows has achieved an enduring place in our literature: it succeeds at once in arousing our anxieties and in calming them by giving perfect shape to our desire for peace and escape.

Review:

"It is a Household Book; a book which everybody in the household loves, and quotes coninually; a book which is read aloud to every new guest and is regarded as the touchstone of his worth." A.A. Milne

Synopsis:

The escapades of four animal friends who live along a river in the English countryside--Toad, Mole, Rat, and Badger.

Synopsis:

The Wind in the Willows is a book for those 'who keep the spirit of youth alive in them; of life, sunshine, running water, woodlands, dusty roads, winter firesides.'
