about

Kenneth Grahame's exuberant yet whimsical The Wind in the Willows* belongs to the golden age of children's classic novels. One of the true classics of English literature, here are the wonderfully imagined Ratty, Mole, Badger and the conceited Toad of Toad Hall — whose passion for motorcars lands him in many jams.

KENNETH GRAHAME (1859-1932) The Wind in the Willows, like all exemplary children’s literature, has always appealed greatly to grown-ups as well. Grahame's idyllic world is as fresh now as ever before, filled with familiar human types disguised as animals,

Published in 1908, when “motor-cars” were new and rare, The Wind in the Willows presents surprisingly contemporary depictions of speed-crazed Mr. Toad, generous Badger, poetic Ratty, and the newly emancipated Mole. And lurking all the while within the humor and good spirits: Grahame’s deeply felt commentary on courage, generosity, and above all, friendship.

*Number 16 on the BBC's list of 100 Best Novels.
