Publisher Comments:

The much-loved classic tales of Ratty, Mole, Badger and Toad.

When Mole goes boating with Ratty instead of doing his spring-cleaning, he discovers a whole new world. As well as adventures on the river and in the Wild Wood, there are high jinks on the open road with that reckless ruffian, Mr Toad of Toad Hall. Ratty, Mole, Badger, and Toad become the firmest of friends, but after Toad's latest escapade, can they join together and beat the wretched weasels once and for all?

With an introduction by well-loved children's author Brian Jacques, The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame is one of the twelve wonderful classic stories being relaunched in Puffin Classics to celebrate Puffin's dedication to publishing the most innovative and imaginative children's literature for generations.

Synopsis:

The great Norse sagas, full of adventures, magic, and heroic deeds--Yggdrasill the World Tree, Odin's wanderings, Thor's hammer, the death of Baldur, Freya the bride, the vision of Ragnarok--these are tales told since time immemorial. Peopled with Frost Giants and Valkyries, Norns and all the gods of Asgard, Myths of the Norsemen brings to life the harsh but exciting world of the old Norsemen.
