The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a wonderful hardback edition (part of the Oxford Children's Classics Collection), perfect as a gift or to last and last when read and reread from the nursery bookshelf. With the complete and unabridged text, 100 years on this superb story of mole and badger and their hapless friend toad still has the power to capture and inspire the reader’s imagination.

Sally Grindley, December 2010 Guest Editor, explains why she loves The Wind in the Willows:
"This is my all time favourite childrens’ book. Thanks, Mum, for introducing me to it! What wonderful characters and what a fabulous plot. You can’t help but love naïve little Mole, discovering life above ground for the first time; industrious Ratty, always on the go and mad about boating; avuncular Badger, ready with a wise word and a warm fire; and, of course, incorrigible Mr Toad, who never stops getting into the most extraordinary scrapes. The backdrop to it all is the Wild Wood, with its wicked bands of stoats and weasels. Watch out, Toad!"
The Wind In The Willows by Kenneth Grahame
If you love a good story, then look no further. Oxford Children's Classics bring together the most unforgettable stories ever told. They're books to treasure and return to again and again. When Mole takes a break from his cleaning and wanders down to the river bank, he meets the Water Rat and a friendship is instantly formed. The two, together with Badger, spend a glorious summer messing about on the river, picnicking on the bank, and taking life easy. But when their hapless friend Toad gets into a spot of bother they dash to his aid. Soon the four friends are fighting to save Toad Hall from the dastardly stoats and weasels.
