Timeless. This is just such a wonderful book. If you liked this and need something a little denser and more mature, try your hand at 'Watership Down'.
Wonderful classic adventures of mole, rat and other forest friends. Rich language and subtle humour cultivate vocabulary and writing style for young (and old!) minds, an artform rare in modern times. Deeply appreciate these stories.
Begun as a series of letters from Kenneth Grahame to his son, The Wind in the Willows is a timeless tale of animal cunning and human camaraderie. Since its first publication in 1908, generations of adults and children have cherished this world of gurgling rivers and whispering reeds, serving as home to the most lovable creatures in all literature―Rat, Mole, Badger, and the irrepressible Toad of Toad Hall; with his goggles, overcoat and love of fast cars. Follow these little adventurers through gypsy caravans, stolen sports cars, and their Wild Wood.
I just absolutely loved this book! I read it to my 3rd & 4th grade Literature class and they were entranced from the start. I laughed as much as they did and I think I enjoyed it even more than the children. I ended up buying a copy - I liked it that much - but I have to say that this particular publication has the best illustrations of all - they are enticing and funny!
First published in 1908, "The Wind in the Willows" has been capturing the hearts and imaginations of children and adults alike for over a century. A story about loyalty and friendship, Grahame's book follows the story of bashful Mole, wise Rat, boastful Toad and practical Badger, who live in the beautiful and pristine English countryside.
The ebook version does not include illustrations as of October 18, 2015. Go for the print version to see some of the beautiful illustrations.
It is a great story!
This was an okay book, I've read it before, It's good if you are an animal character sort of person.
I loved this book as a child and I still like to re-read it occasionally. It is such a gentle story but at the same time deals with the big important ideas like friendship, courage, honesty and responsibility. I must say that as a kid I never realized that life lessons were being taught; it was just a good read.
Love this book!
