The Wind in the Willows Synopsis

One of the most famous animal stories of all time, The Wind in the Willows is a classic that has been entertaining children and adults alike for over a hundred years. The Wild Wood seems a terrifying place to Mole, until one day he pokes his nose out of his burrow and finds it's full of friends. He meets brave Ratty, kind old Badger and the rascally Mr Toad, and together they go adventuring . . . but the Wild Wood doesn't just contain friends, there are also the sinister weasels and stoats, and they capture Toad Hall when Mr Toad is in jail. How will he escape? And can the friends fight together to save Toad Hall? Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows is a classic animal adventure that charms and enthrals. This hardback edition contains the original full-colour illustrations by E H Shepard, a partnership that has never been bettered. A perfect gift for children aged 9 and above.
