Description
Like his renowned countryman Lewis Carroll, British author Kenneth Grahame (1859-1932) found writing tales for children a pleasant diversion from his regular duties in the everyday world. The Wind in the Willows , his most memorable collection of stories, is today a much-loved classic of children's literature. Begun as a series of bedtime stories that Grahame, a bank executive, told his young son, this engaging fantasy recounts the whimsical adventures of a delightful company of animals -- among them Mole, Ray, Badger, and Toad -- all of whom possess decidedly human characteristics. This charming new version, with over 30 original illustrations by Thea Kliros, has been specially prepared for young readers and retains all the character and flavor of the original stories. Once again youngsters follow the shy but curious Mole as he sets out one spring day from his little underground home and is befriended by the extremely personable Water Rat, who introduces him to Badger, the reclusive philosopher, and to pleasure-seeking Toad of Toad Hall. Children and adults alike will fall under the charming spell of this humorous potpourri of make-believe as it paints a gently satirical picture of loyalties, weakness, and extravagant behavior.
