Synopsis: One of the all-time great animal stories and a true classic of children's literature by Kenneth Grahame. The Wild Wood seems a terrifying place to Mole, until he finds it's full of friends - Kind, sleepy Badger; brave and lively Ratty; and the irresponsible Mr Toad, famous for his wealth and his car smashes. But there are also the sinister weasels and stoats, and they capture Toad Hall when Mr Toad is in jail. How will he escape? And can the friends fight together to save Toad Hall? Kenneth Grahame's classic The Wind in the Willows needs no introduction. Entertaining adults and children alike for over a hundred years, characters such as Ratty, Mole, Badger and, of course, the irrepressible Mr Toad have influenced children's animal stories ever since. Fun, exciting, whimsical and dangerous at times, The Wind in the Willows can't help but spark a child's imagination. In this Egmont Heritage edition, Kenneth Grahame's animal book, is made all the more beautiful and enthralling thanks to the original illustrations by E. H. Shepard, the man who also drew Winnie-the-Pooh. A stunning gift book for any child or inner child.
About the Author: Kenneth Grahame was born in Edinburgh in 1859. He was sent to work at the Bank of England in 1879, finally retiring as its Secretary in 1908. While still young, Grahame began to publish stories in London periodicals. These were published in three separate collections between 1893 and 1898. The Wind in the Willows, Grahame's masterpiece, followed in 1908. The waywardness he saw in his young son Alastair provided inspiration for the character of Mr Toad - foolhardy, rambunctious, larger than life and very loveable.
