LoveReading View on The Wind in the Willows (Illustrated by Robert Ingpen)

This timeless tale has never been out of print and remains one of the best loved children’s titles in English literature.  Grahame’s wonderful imagination and quiet humour continue to charm children and adults alike and this edition is beautifully complemented by some stunning illustrations throughout by award-winning illustrator Robert Ingpen. Other classics illustrated by Robert Ingpen and in a wonderful gift hardback edition include, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, The Jungle Book, and Peter Pan

**** Parents might also be interested in Wild Wood, Jan Needle's richly comic re-telling of Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows, a book which can be read as political satire but there's much more to enjoy. Though the wood is cold and unemployment bleak it only takes a sea rat with an accordion and a nip of Daisy Ferret's special brew to get the stoats and weasels partying.  Wild Wood is as funny, as relevant and as pleasurable in 2014 as it was on first publication in 1981.
