A charming piece of literature

by Tarissa on Oct 4, 2014

'The Wind in the Willows'... ah! A perfectly lovely read that families should be enjoying by their fireside. The animals in the story will become your closest friends. What a joy to watch their antics unfold! Especially Toad... poor, misguided Toad. The one thing I could have done without? There was a certain word that the author used on several occasions throughout the story. I was quite shocked to find it in a children's book, but, oh well. To Ratty and Moley: I do hope you'll both visit me again sometime. If only I could visit the River Thames...


A brilliant classic

by LindaFO on Nov 29, 2012

We have enjoyed this book for decades, having read it every year to our kids, and we hope the next generation will love it as much. We quote from it frequently, and still think of our youngest son as a Mr. Toad, though he has vastly improved in most ways. My husband is Mr. Badger, and I am a combination of Ratty, Mole, and Otter. "Hang spring cleaning!" Oh, bother, someone has to pick up this mess. Linda Owens


Another gem

by frwasyl on Oct 13, 2011

My daughter has a library of WIND IN THE WILLOWS, which she began accidentally and then when we became aware, pursued with a bit of intelligence. This particular book, although not rare, is lovely. The store got me the book efficiently and in good order. I recommend this store and this book. Rev. RWA


Four Friends With Very Different Personalities

by FanOfTimeLifeBooks on Sep 14, 2011

Written in 1908, The Wind in the Willows portrays the friendship of four animals that live on the River Bank and in the Wild Wood in England. While these animals are loyal friends, they possess very different character traits. Mole is sensitive and sensible. Rat is tactful and good-natured. Mr. Badger is wise and aloof. Mr. Toad is clever, flighty, impulsive--and obsessed with motorcars. Author Kenneth Grahame has done an excellent job with character development in this book. Also, the plentiful use of metaphors and skillful utilization of personification make for vivid visual imagery; readers can sense the change in seasons as they move through the book. This is by far one of the best books I have ever read and I highly recommend it.
