The Robert Ingpen Illustrated Classics Collection by Kenneth Grahame, Rudyard Kipling, Robert Louis Stevenson

A beautiful collection of timeless classics for a new generation, featuring three of the best-loved children's titles. Meet unforgettable characters in The Jungle Book and follow man-cub Mowgli's adventures with the Wolf Pack as he faces up to his life-long enemy, Shere Khan. Go on a swashbuckling journey in search of buried treasure with young Jim Hawkins in Treasure Island and see how Mr Toad leads his companions from one escapade to the next in The Wind in the Willows, until he finally realises the value of true friendship.

Reviews

“Robert Ingpen’s breathtaking autumnal illustrations depict the characters as real animals and evoke the English countryside so convincingly that you can almost smell the river.” - Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times, on The Wind in the Willows
