Home Kenneth Grahame The Wind in the Willows. The wind in the willows, . One of these the Badger flung open, and atonce they found themselves in all the glow and warmth of a largefire-lit kitchen. The floor was well-worn red brick, and on the wide hearth burnt a fireof logs, between two attractive chimney-corners tucked away in thewall, well out of any suspicion of draught. A couple of high-backedsettles, facing each other on either side of the fire, gave furthersitting accommodations for the sociably disposed.

The Wind in the Willows is a children's novel by Scottish novelist Kenneth Grahame, first published in 1908. Alternately slow-moving and fast-paced, it focuses on four anthropomorphised animals: Mole, Rat (a European water vole), Toad, and Badger. They live in a pastoral version of Edwardian England. The novel is notable for its mixture of mysticism, adventure, morality, and camaraderie, and celebrated for its evocation of the nature of the Thames Valley.

Kenneth Grahame The Wind in the Willows The River Bank The Mole had been working very hard all the morning, spring-cleaning his little home. First with brooms, then with dusters; then on ladders and steps and chairs, with a brush and a pail of whitewash; till he had dust in his throat and eyes, and splashes of whitewash all over his black fur, and an aching back and weary arms. Something up above was calling him imperiously, and he made for the steep little tunnel which answered in his case to the gravelled carriage-drive owned by animals whose residences are nearer to the sun and air.

This is better than whitewashing!"The sunshine struck hot on his fur, soft breezes caressed his heatedbrow, and after the seclusion of the cellarage he had lived in so longthe carol of happy birds fell on his dulled hearing almost like a shout.

WONDERFUL book. My grandson (3.5 yrs) just keep asking over and over, to read the chapters about Toad's adventures. Great classic. Nice large size, with hardbound cover, which lasts longer. This book gets lots of use at our house. Our first copy, purchased 30 years ago, is still in use, also, but it's been passed on to the original user - our eldest son. This copy is for Grammy's house.

The book is beautiful. And unabridged. But the buyer needs to know the cd contains only the first chapter and the seventh and eighth chapter. I needed the complete book on cd. So I was really disappointed. The book is really beautiful though.

Last page needed to be glued/taped in but otherwise it was perfect shape! Like new! Absolutely beautiful to give grandson!

I read the book Wind In The Willows and it was one of the best books I have read. I thought that The book was just going to be an old classic and boring book. But now after reading it, I realize that everybody should read the book once in their lifetime.

The setting of the book is in the Wild Wood and along the river banks. There are many charming characters such as the handsome Mole, the wise and old Badger, the caring and brave Water Rat, and who could forget the crazy and adventurers Toad. There are weasels and ferrets who try to over run Toad Hall.

It all starts when Mole decides to go boating with Ratty instead of doing his annual spring cleaning. He finds a world he never knew was even there. He discovers the Wild Wood, a long river, Toad Hall, and many friends. Mole meets many new friends and lives with Ratty for a while. They all become quick friends. It made me feel happy for Mole when he made friends instead of being shy.

Yet, my least favorite character, Toad tests their great friendship. The reckless Toad gets a hobbie of motorcars and gets taken to the prison for speeding and driving crazy. This made mad me at Toad because he endangered all of the animals. I thought the poor Toad was done for good but no. He manages to escape. Toad gets the washerwomen's outfit and sneaks out of the prison and makes it all the way home. I was amazed at how clever he was to get out. I was glad that Toad got out because the friends could continue their great friendship.

Meanwhile, Water Rat's good friend Otter's son has gone missing. When I read this I was scared because Portly was just a young pup. After a long time searching, they found him alive sitting in all the snow. I was very happy that they had found him.

When the toad comes home he finds that the weasels and ferrets are taking over Toad Hall. Toad gets angry. I would be angry too if someone tried to take over my hall. This is where the wise Badger comes in handy. He knows of an old underground passage to take that leads to Toad Hall. Water Rat collects all his swords and guns to use. Toad goes crazy saying things like "They all go boom." They end up taking back the great Hall and that was a good thing for Toad and everyone.

Wind in the Willows was an awesome book to read for a great plot and fun characters. It is a book for all ages of readers. I enjoyed it and I hope you will too.
