Meet the Author


Kenneth Grahame (1859-1932) was a Scottish writer of fantasies for children and adults. He also worked a daytime job as a banker until retiring in 1908, the same year he published his most famous work, The Wind in the Willows—in which Mr. Toad is modeled after Grahame’s son, whose tragic death at twenty darkened the author’s later years.
