Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the best-loved childrens books of all time is updated for a new generation in a beautifully designed gift edition liberally illustrated by David Roberts.

The story begins when Mole abandons his spring cleaning to explore the world beyond his burrow. He scurries down to the riverbank, where he meets Ratty and discovers a carefree world of picnics and messing about in boats. There are adventures ahead, in the company of reckless Mr. Toad, and dangers, when the two friends venture into the Wild Wood to visit Mr. Badger. And there are events that test the friendship of the four animals to the limits, but through it all they retain their loyalty and good humor. Generations have fallen in love with Kenneth Grahames enduring story — and here, in a sumptuous new gift edition stunningly illustrated by David Roberts, The Wind in the Willows stands poised to capture young readers hearts anew.

Synopsis:

In a beautiful single volume, Inga Moores magical illustrations bring Kenneth Grahames much-loved classic to life for a new generation of readers.

Kenneth Grahames classic tale of the pleasures of country life and the dependability of good friends will never grow old. Now, in this splendid volume, Inga Moore recaptures its scenes and its characters with richly patterned and warmly detailed illustrations. Here, drawn with charming freshness, are impulsive dear Mole, rash Mr. Toad, reclusive Badger, and sensible Rat, so happy just "messing around in boats." And here are the most treasured moments from THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS - Moles first enraptured row on the river, Toads irrepressible adventures in and out of automobiles, and many more. So gather round to read or listen, and, as Mole and Rat would heartily agree, a fine time will be had by all.

About the Author

Inga Moore says that illustrating Kenneth Grahames famous story was both great fun and a great challenge. "THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS is such a wonderful book that I never tire of reading it. I couldnt possibly let it down, so I had to do my best work ever." Of the wayward Mr. Toad, she adds, "He is a celebration of the life we would lead if only we could."
