A grand classic

When Mole decides to go for a walk one beautiful spring morning he has little idea of the world that awaits him by the riverbank. He soon encounters brave river-faring Ratty who introduces him to kind old Badger in the dark Wild Wood and Mr Toad of Toad Hall. The four companions share many exploits and work together to help the irrepressible Toad through a series of comical misadventures resulting in his final return to glory.

The Wind in the Willows is a must-read classic of children’s literature, written by the Scottish novelist Kenneth Grahame, published in 1908. This novel is a striking work, one of the best-known in the animal fantasy genre, and is famous for being set in the upper Thames Valley countryside. This unabridged large-format edition is beautifully illustrated by Christopher Dunn, whose watercolours offer one of the most beautiful interpretations of this timeless story of adventure and friendship yet.
