Kenneth Grahame (1859-1932), Scottish-born author, was raised by his grandmother in Berkshire, England, along the banks of the Thames River. He was educated at Oxford and then worked for the Bank of England. As a pastime, he wrote light nonfiction and articles for newspapers. The Wind in the Willows, originally written as letters to his son, established him as a writer of children's books and had a deep influence on fantasy literature.From AudioFile:
This dramatization of Grahame's story has wonderfully expressive characterizations to tickle young imaginations. There's a full gamut of sound effects and music reminiscent of phonograph records of the '50's. A young boy plays the hero, an innocent voice wiser than the eccentric adults around him. The dragon speaks his pacifist message in slow cartoon-like cadences while St. George delivers his role in a stalwart voice. The male narrator is warm and expressive as host of this appealing program. D.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
