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.” So wrote Kenneth Grahame of his timeless tale of Rat, Mole, Badger, and Toad, in their lyrical world of gurgling rivers and whispering reeds, a world which is both beautiful and benevolently ordered. But it is also a world threatened by dark 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. In the end, Grahame triumphantly succeeds in conveying his most precious theme: the miracle of loyalty and friendship. This tale of four friends and their adventures is a timeless classic that will inspire and delight listeners of all ages.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A Household Book...a book which everybody in the household loves, and quotes continually...a book which is read aloud to every new guest and is regarded as the touchstone of his worth.” A. A. Milne
“The book is an urbane exercise in irony at the expense of the English character and of mankind. It is entirely successful.” Arnold Bennett
“The Wind in the Willows is a wise book.” Vainty Fair
“The Wind in the Willows, like A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh, tunes us into childhood mysteries with pitch-perfect style ” . The Globe and Mail
