The Wind in the Willows: V&A Collector's Edition [9780141385679]

(1 review) Write a Review

The much-loved classic tales of Ratty, Mole, Badger and Toad, reissued in hardback with a stunningly beautiful cover design based on the V & A Museum's William Morris collection.

When Mole goes boating with Ratty instead of doing his spring-cleaning, he discovers a whole new world.

As well as adventures on the river and in the Wild Wood, there are high jinks on the open road with that reckless ruffian, Mr Toad of Toad Hall. Ratty, Mole, Badger and Toad become the firmest of friends, but after Toad's latest escapade, can they join together and beat the wretched weasels once and for all?

This is a wonderful, timeless classic story for readers of all ages.
AUTHOR: Kenneth Grahame (1859-1932) was born in Edinburgh, but grew up with relatives in Berkshire where he developed his love for the countryside surrounding the upper parts of the River Thames. He was educated at St Edward's in Oxford, but instead of going on to Oxford University he joined the Bank of England, where he rose to become Secretary. He wrote several books including The Golden Age and Dream Days which includes the short story 'The Reluctant Dragon' (later made into a Disney movie). Kenneth Grahame developed the character of Toad in The Wind in the Willows to amuse his young son, Alistair. It was published in 1908 and still remains a best-loved children's classic.

    but not for a child..

    I bought this for a 4 yo to be read to but returned it as it has no illustrations - children need an idea of how and where the animals lived.
