The Wind in the Willows is a nostalgic children’s tale that transports readers to a gentler pace of life along the bank of a river. The adventures of the unforgettable characters Mole, Rat, Toad and Badger keeps readers enthralled, as they learn about the friendship between Mole and Rat and how they rescue Toad from his overenthusiastic pursuit of his latest fad, be it boats, caravans or motor cars.
The gentle humour, Toad’s escapades, the camaraderie between the characters, and their final joining forces to take back Toad’s home, Toad Hall, from its occupation by weasels and stoats who have emerged from the Wild Wood, provide readers with many memorable moments to cherish.
This edition includes timelines of the author’s life and original year of publication to provide the literary, historical and cultural context of the book.
