9781598183788: The Wind in the Willows

Although The Wind in the Willows is now, without doubt, considered one of the classics, its publisher, prior to the first issue in 1908, feared for the book's reception. Unlike Grahame's prior novels which featured young children, this story (originally entitled Mr. Toad) features animals, clothed in ordinary garments and thinking, talking, and behaving as humans.

The Wind in the Willows is something special that will bring out the child in every member of the family: you need to buy this book, and read it now, aloud.

"One does not argue about The Wind in the Willows. The young man gives it to the girl with whom he is in love, and, if she does not like it, asks her to return his letters. The older man tries it on his nephew, and alters his will accordingly. The book is a test of character. We can't criticize it, because it is criticizing us. But I must give you one word of warning. When you sit down to it, don't be so ridiculous as to suppose that you are sitting in judgment on my taste, or on the art of Kenneth Grahame. You are merely sitting in judgment on yourself. You may be worthy: I don't know. But it is you who are on trial."

--A.A. Milne
